Huby CE Primary School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. All North Yorkshire schools, including Huby School, follow the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board procedures. The school will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their child/ren. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Social Care and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with Child Protection procedures). The school will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents. The school’s child protection policy is available to download from the above list.
All schools are required to have Lockdown procedures in the case of dynamic emergencies. Our school has a comprehensive policy covering such a situation. It is important that parents have guidance on what they could expect if there were a Lockdown in progress. Obviously, such emergencies would all present unique challenges, and the school would be obliged to follow guidance from the relevant emergency services which may differ from the information below. However, we hope the procedures below are helpful to you in knowing what you could expect.
Should a Lockdown occur, it is advised that developments are communicated to parents / guardians as soon as is practicable and in some cases in agreement with the emergency services and the most senior member of NYCC staff overseeing the incident. Parents will be naturally concerned, anxious and all accurate information releases will assist to alleviate undue anxiety.
The school’s main priority is the safety and welfare of its pupils, and dealing with the immediate situation. However, we will endeavour to ensure that parents / guardians are given enough information to enable them to understand the potential outcome and when possible time frames so that they:
During the initial “breaking news” of the incident it is vital that all parents are re- assured regarding the welfare and safety to their children is paramount and that the matter is being dealt with by the emergency services and NYCC jointly to resolve the matter as soon as possible with little impact to the pupils and the wider community.
However it must also be stressed that at this time the school is in a full lockdown procedure. During this period the office and entrances will be un-manned, external doors will be locked and no persons allowed in or out of the premises until further notice.
