Safeguarding Statement

Gledhow Primary’s school aim is to create a safe, happy and caring community supporting ambition and achievement for all. To achieve this, we recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils.

We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued.

We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.

PREVENT in Leeds

The purpose of the Prevent strategy is to safeguard and support vulnerable people to stop them from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.

The Prevent Strategy is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. It:

*Responds to the ideological challenge we face from terrorism and aspects of extremism, and the threat we face from those who promote these views

*Provides practical help to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support

*Works with a wide range of sectors (including education, criminal justice, faith, charities, online and health)

The new Prevent Duty, the Department for Education’s SMSC requirements, British Values Guidance and Ofsted’s inspection criteria all require schools to ensure students are aware of risks associated with extremism. We endeavour to do this through our broad and balanced curriculum.





Domestic Violence

Gledhow  Primary School works jointly with West Yorkshire Police. This has been established to support children who are resident in households where there are incidents of domestic violence and abuse. The initiative has been designed to provide confidential notification to schools on any incidents of domestic violence and abuse which occur within a child’s household that might have an impact on a child whilst he or she is in school. This enables us to support a child who may come into school potential worries or emotional barriers to their learning.

If you would like to speak to someone in school about domestic violence, please contact Mr Wood, Mrs Burrough or any member of the school Child Protection team.

If you would like further support or information about domestic violence and abuse please go to www.leedsdomesticviolenceandabuse.co.uk.

Advice for Children and Young People

If someone is hurting you, doing things to you against your will or being mean to you, tell someone: your parents, your friends, trusted teachers or other staff at school. You should also speak to us if you are worried about someone else – a child or an adult.

If you don’t want to speak to someone in school, you have other choices. Phone or click to access the ChildLine website:


If you are being bullied online, or if you have any concerns about things on the internet, speak to a trusted adult, call the police or use this link:
