‘Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children.’

Keeping Children Safe in Education

Badger Hill Primary School is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors.  We promote a climate where students and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others.

Anyone with any concerns about the welfare of a pupil MUST report it to our Designated Safeguarding Lead, or if she is not available one of her deputies, as soon as possible by contacting the school on 01904 806480 or emailing office@badgerhill.pmat.academy.

Operation Encompass

Our school has been given the opportunity to take part in a new project that will run jointly between all schools, academies and colleges in York and North Yorkshire. This new project, Operation Encompass, has been designed to provide early reporting to schools of any domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of normal school hours and that might have had an impact on a child attending our premises the following day. This information will be shared at the earliest opportunity between Monday to Friday and, when an incident occurs on a Friday, Saturday or a Sunday, the police will contact us the following Monday.
