Child Protection Information

The health, safety and well-being of all our pupils at Sutton Park Primary school is of the utmost importance.  Our priority is to provide a safe and welcoming environment, where pupils are valued and respected.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection policy, which can be viewed in our policy section.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare.  We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with their parents/carers in the first instance, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

We know that children thrive better and are able to reach their full potential when we work closely together.  At Sutton Park Primary School we are committed to this and look forward to our continuing close partnership with you in the future.

Lisa Williamson is our Designated Lead for Child Protection and safeguarding 

If you have any concerns about a child, please contact her either by phone on 01482 825502 or in person.

Any conversation will be treated according to safeguarding regulations.

Other members of the safeguarding team are:

Mrs Wendy Moses – Deputy Child Protection and safeguarding

Mr Andrew Holbrook – Child Protection

Out of school hours or during school holidays:

If your concern is urgent and there is an immediate risk of harm, then contact the Police on 999

If your concern is less urgent, but you are worried for the welfare of a child, then contact Hull City Council EHaSH (Early Help and safeguarding Hub) on 01482 448879

If you have a concern about a child at Sutton Park Primary School , which you believe staff need to know about, then contact Suzanne Wilson (Strategic Safeguarding Lead for HCAT): swilson@hcat.org.uk.  Ms Wilson will then make contact with a key member of staff from the academy on your behalf.

Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass is a partnership between the Police and designated school staff, known as Key Adults. Working together to safeguard children, the Police will inform the Key Adults within schools, about any incident where the child or young person has been present or exposed to domestic abuse.

The information shared with the school’s trained Key Adult allows the provision of immediate early intervention through overt or silent support, dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child.

The Key Adult at Sutton Park Primary School is Lisa Williamson.
