Shap CE Primary SchoolA Safe Branch from which to Soar

Welcome toShap CE Primary SchoolA Safe Branch from which to Soar


We have robust safeguarding policies and procedures established.  Ofsted (July 2019) recognised: 


'Governors and leaders have established a culture of safeguarding in the school. Leaders ensure that staff are well trained to recognise signs of abuse, and follow appropriate procedures for reporting in a timely manner any concerns they may have about pupils’ welfare.   Leaders work effectively with a range of agencies to share important information, and to ensure that pupils and their families receive the help and support they need. Teachers value the clear systems leaders have put in place to help them understand potential barriers to pupils’ learning. They say that these systems help them to see the ‘bigger picture’ for pupils, and provide the support that pupils need.  The school’s curriculum ensures that pupils discuss relationships and develop a strong understanding of how to stay safe when online.

The school is a warm, caring environment in which pupils say they feel safe.'


All of our staff within school have completed and achieved their Safeguarding and Child Protection Level 1 (eLearning) qualification, enabling them to recognise when a child may be suffering from abuse and what to do to keep children safe.  Key safeguarding members of our team are detailed below:
