Safeguarding at Hucklow

At Hucklow Primary School, all staff recognise that we have a shared responsibility to help keep children and young people safe by contributing to providing a safe environment for children to learn in and identifying children who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm, and taking appropriate action with the aim of making sure they are kept safe both at home and school.

Sheffield has a Multi-Agency Children’s Safeguarding Board which Hucklow Primary School supports and is guided by.

Dear Parents and Carers,

As the growth of the Corona Virus accelerates we have been taking steps to reduce the risk to our pupils, and we have been making plans to support our families in the event of any future school closures. The children have been brilliant and we have seen a record level of liquid soap and hand sanitiser being used. Staff are promoting regular handwashing in each class.

Operation Encompass

Our School has been given the opportunity to take part in a project that will run jointly with South Yorkshire Police. This project is known as Operation Encompass.

Operation Encompass is the notification to schools that a child (under 18) has been exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident. This will ordinarily be done by the start of the next school day.
