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.

We all have a responsibility to keep children safe.  This is even more important during current school closure due to the Covid-19 situation.  If you have concerns about a child's wellbeing, please contact the school's DSL staff: Mrs S Acton or Mr J Simpson. 


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.
