Safeguarding Children

Safeguarding is the action that is taken at Scotby Primary School to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm. 

Safeguarding means:

  • protecting children from abuse and maltreatment, whether the risk of harm comes from within the child’s family and/or outside (from the wider community), including online
  • preventing harm to children's health or development
  • ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking actions to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.


Scotby CE School is committed to ensuring school is a happy, safe environment.

Everyone has a responsibility to keep children safe and help then to grow into confident and secure adults. 


The summer holidays are an amazing time, but can be difficult for some children and family. If you have any safeguarding concerns about a child, please follow the process on the CSCP website:


If you are concerned that a child is in an emergency situation you should contact the Police immediately on 999.


If you would like to get in touch with school about any safeguarding concerns, please email us at


We have clear policy and procedures for keeping children safe and we would raise any concerns with you.  We also explicitly teach safety with the children.  Our Kidsafe and Life Education programmes are also supported by our PSHE curriculum.
