'Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone's responsibility. Everyone who come into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children.'
Heworth Primary is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors promoting a climate where children and adults feel confident about sharing concerns which they have about their own safety or the well-being of others.
Anyone with concerns about the safety of a student MUST report it to our designated Safeguarding lead or team:
- Designated Safeguarding Lead - Headteacher, Michael Carr
- Deputy Safeguarding Lead - Assistant Headteacher, Lorraine Atkinson
- Safeguarding Governor - Sheila Robson
To report any safeguarding concerns please our safeguarding team can be contacted using the school's email or telephone number.

Our school has been given the opportunity to take part in a new project that will run jointly between all schools, academies and colleges in York and North Yorkshire. This new project, Operation Encompass, has been designed to provide early reporting to schools of any domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of normal school hours and that might have had an impact on a child attending our premises the following day. This information will be shared at the earliest opportunity between Monday to Friday and, when an incident occurs on a Friday, Saturday or a Sunday, the police will contact us the following Monday.
