Statement of Intent
Archbishop of York’s CE Junior School considers safeguarding, and promoting the welfare and protection of children in its care as paramount. It follows the City of York Safeguarding Children Board's procedures and guidance.
We are committed to providing the framework for the protection of our children and young people from abuse and neglect. We are also committed to providing clear directions and guidance on what staff and volunteers should do if they are concerned about a child, creating a culture of appropriate attitudes and behaviours.
This will be achieved by:
The school aims to share information with parents on how to keep children safe, and how they can report concerns if they are worried a child is at risk of harm. A range of information and resources for parents can be found at the City of York Safeguarding Children Board’s website and through the NSPCC website. Please also read our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy on our Policies page.
