Western Primary School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. All North Yorkshire schools, including Western Primary School, follow the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board´s procedures. The school will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their children. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Social Care and/or the police without parental knowledge (in accordance with Child Protection procedures). The school will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents. The school´s Child Protection Policy is available to download form the Policy Page.
