Safeguarding at Byker Primary School

Byker Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.


This means that we have a Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and procedrues in place. All staff (including supply staff, volunteers and governors) must ensure that they are aware of these procedures. Parents and Carers are welcome to read the policy on request.


We have a child friendly version which has been shared with children so they know what is in place to keep them safe and what they can do too.


We pride ourselves on how we work collaboratively with other agencies to support children and their families. This includes counselling services, school health, Barnardo's Family Partners based at Byker Sands Family Centre, Social Care and many others.


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 out pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have a reason to believe that such as move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
