Safeguarding

It is the aim of all leaders, managers and governors at Harehills Primary School to create a culture of vigilance where our children’s welfare is promoted and where timely and appropriate safeguarding action is taken if needed.

To enable us to ensure Safeguarding relates to all aspects of life we regularly review all aspects of Safeguarding within school.

“This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all children and expects our staff and volunteers to share this commitment.”  Mrs Summerfield - Head Teacher.
