Safeguarding Children

At Thornton Primary School, keeping children safe from harm is our highest priority.

We are committed to safeguarding children and all staff at the school are employed subject to a clear DBS check for a regulated activity.

Below, you'll find some useful sources of information about how we safeguard pupils.


Our school is part of Operation Encompass.  This is a Police and education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people who experience Domestic Abuse.
