Safeguarding is a term which is broader than ‘child protection’ and relates to the action taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm. Pupils' safety is paramount at Ackton Pastures Primary Academy.
Please contact a member of the Safeguarding Team if you have any concerns about a pupil within the Academy.
If parents/carers would like any further information regarding the safeguarding of children then please follow this link:
Here at Ackton Pastures Primary Academy we are committed to the Wakefield and District Safeguarding Children Board’s ‘Young People’s Safeguarding Charter'. You will find our certificate in and around our Academy.
As part of our commitment to safeguarding, we are involved in a pilot project between school and West Yorkshire Police to support school age children who are victims or witnesses of domestic abuse. The project is called 'Operation Encompass'.
