Child Protection

At Market Weighton Infant School, we recognise that your child is our responsibility and concern. We want to work in partnership with you, and discuss with you, any concerns we may have or that you may have. It is a priority to inform and involve you at every stage in your child’s time at school. However, since the first priority is your child’s welfare, there may be rare occasions when our concern about your child means that we have to consult other agencies even before we contact you.

The East Riding Safeguarding Children Board has laid down the procedures we follow, and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this for the safety of all. You can call into school and request to see this policy or view it by clicking on the policy link above. All staff receive regular training.

Our Designated Safeguarding Governor is Mrs Hazel Beales .  If you have any queries or suggestions, please send a letter to Mrs Beales via the office and mark your envelope 'Private & Confidential'.  The Designated Safeguarding Officer is Mrs Kay-Wood and Mrs Haskey is the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Officer.  We work together with other services for children and families to support the needs of children. If you wish to know more about this important area, please contact the Head Teacher.
