Safeguarding and Online Safety

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead and Prevent Duty Lead is Sarah White (Head Teacher)


As a caring school we foster the welfare of all pupils in creating a happy, safe and secure environment. We recognise that high self-esteem, confidence, peer support and clear lines of communication with trusted adults helps all children. Our school will therefore:


  • Establish and maintain an ethos where children feel secure and are encouraged to talk, and are listened to.
  • Ensure that children know there are adults in the school who they can approach if they are worried or in difficulty.
  • Include in the curriculum activities and opportunities for PSHE which equip children with the skills they need to stay safe from abuse, sexual exploitation, radicalisation and extremism.
  • Ensure that wherever possible every effort will be made to establish effective working relationships with parents and colleagues from other agencies.

Our Online Safety Champion is Mr Sam Stell.


As part of the new National Curriculum, Waddington and West Bradford Primary School staff are determined to improve the knowledge, skill and maturity of our children in regards to Internet use and safety.

Waddington and West Bradford Primary School prides itself on all stakeholders developing a curriculum and daily opportunities to exploit the Internet and the acceptable way this resource should be used. Children throughout school are taught about online safety and how they can remain safe when on the internet. This is often taught throughout the curriculum and also through Collective Worship as a whole school, Key Stage and Class Assemblies. We also hold training sessions for parents, Governors and staff regarding the issues of online safety.


Safer Internet Day is on Tuesday 6th February 2024.


If someone has done something online that has made you or a child or young person you know, feel worried or unsafe, contact the CEOP Safety Centre using the CLICK CEOP button.

Operation Encompass


The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in or witness to a domestic abuse incident. Domestic abuse impacts on children a numbers of ways. Children are at increased risk of physical injury during an incident, either by accident or because they attempt to intervene. Even when not directly injured, children are greatly distressed by witnessing the physical and emotional suffering of a parent.


Operation Encompass has been created to address this situation. It is promoting a key partnership between the police and schools. The aim of sharing information with local schools is to allow school staff the opportunity of engaging with the child and to provide access to support that allows them to remain in a safe but secure familiar environment.


Following the report of an incident of domestic abuse, by 9:10am on the next school day the school’s Headteacher will be informed that the child or young person has been involved in a domestic incident. This knowledge, given to schools through Operation Encompass, allows the provision of immediate early intervention through silent or overt support dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child.


The Encompass Leads are: Mrs White and Mrs Madeley
