Safeguarding Statement

Boroughbridge Primary School and Nursery is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. All North Yorkshire schools, including Boroughbridge Primary  School and Nursery follow the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Partnership procedures. The school will, normally, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their child/ren. 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 publicly on the school website and a paper copy is available from the school office on request.

Child Safety

The ChildLine Schools Service has recently visited all children in years 1 to 6  to provide them with key messages about keeping safe.  It can be beneficial for these messages to be reinforced at home. The NSPCC has developed some guides for all parents of primary school aged children  to speak to their child about keeping safe – called the Underwear rule. You can find guides to the Underwear Rule to help you have simple conversations about keeping safe from abuse at can speak to an advisor for further advice or request a hard-copy guide for parents and carers by phoning the NSPCC Helpline on 0808 800 5000. You can also visit for other advice on keeping your child safe.
