Keeping our children safe
At White Laith we are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our pupils so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. We believe every pupil should be able to participate in all school activities in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from harm.
This is the responsibility of every adult employed by or invited to deliver services at White Laith. We recognise our responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all our pupils by protecting them from physical, sexual or emotional abuse, neglect and bullying.
Our Designated Safeguarding Leads (Child protection) are Mrs Sheerin and Mrs Drinkall. Please do not hesitate to contact them if you have any concerns about the welfare of any of our children.
Copies of all our policies relating to safeguarding can be found in the policies section of our website.
In October 2015 we requested a Safeguarding Audit led by staff from the Leeds Safeguarding team. We wanted to ensure that all our systems are robust and we are very pleased with the outcome of the audit. Our practice is judged to be exemplary.
