Crookhey Hall School upholds a Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy which incorporates Government policy legislation.

Staff are issued a copy of Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2021 and sign to confirm their knowledge and understanding of this document. All staff are aware of their responsibilities for Safeguarding pupils and promoting the welfare of young people.

The Safeguarding policy is accessible to all staff, parents and visitors to the school. The policy provides guidance which sets out clear guidelines and expectations with regards to appropriate relationships between all staff and pupils and includes specific training requirements.

At Crookhey Hall we provide a caring and professional setting in which pupils are given support to ensure their health safety and emotional well-being.

Crookhey Hall has a duty of care and a named Safeguarding lead who has the responsibility to pass on any child protection / safeguarding concerns to the relevant children’s social care services.

Crookhey Hall School participates in the Operation Encompass partnership scheme, between local schools, academies, colleges, community health agencies, and Lancashire Police to find out more about this please visit www.operationencompass.org or contact Pauline Love on 01524 792618.
