The health, safety and well-being if all our pupils at Collingwood Primary school is of the utmost importance. Our priority is to provide a safe and welcoming environment, where pupils are valued and respected.
We have a number if policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection policy, which can be viewed in our policy section.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with their parents/carers in the first instance, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.
We know that children thrive better and are able to reach their full potential when we work closely together. At Collingwood Primary School we are committed to this and look forward to our continuing close partnership with you in the future.
Our Safeguarding Team at Collingwood Primary School is:
Designated Safeguarding Lead
Deputy Safeguarding Lead
Emotional Wellbeing Officer

Operation Encompass is a partnership between the Police and designated school staff, known as Key Adults. Working together to safeguard children, the Police will inform the Key Adults within schools, about any incident where the child or young person has been present or exposed to domestic abuse.
The information shared with the school's trained Key Adult allows the provision of immediate early intervention through overt or silent support, dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child.
The Key Adult at Collingwood Primary School is Bernice Musgrave.
HCAT E-Safety Website Guidance
The online world is integral to how children stay in touch with their friends, and access to the internet is now available like never before. However, there are risks associated with new technology and it is essential for young people, and parents/carers to understand how to reduce these risks.
Most young people have a wide variety of ways they can go online and talk to their friends and others – smart phones, tablets, PCs, Laptops, Xbox etc… and these are all readily available to young people.
Many young people are aware of the possible dangers, but unfortunately do not believe it will happen to them.
Our curriculum promotes online safety in all aspects of ICT usage, and ensures pupils develop the core skills to manage virtual social interactions safely.
We recognise that online safety is constantly changing and evolving therefore, we have selected a number of national organisations that will be able to offer practical advice and guidance on how you can keep your child safe online.
