Statement to Parents


At Craven Primary Academy, the welfare of all our pupils is of great importance to us and we hope that parents are confident about their children’s health and safety whilst in our school.


We will always try to share any concerns we have with parents.  However, there are times when we are legally obliged to share our concerns with other agencies, without first speaking to parents, or without the consent of parents.


The safety and protection of our pupils is our most important concern and we wish to reassure you that any sharing of information is done with the children’s best interest at heart.

Our Deisgnated Safeguarding Lead is: Mr James Phillips In his absence please speak to a member of the Child Protection team.

Our Designated Child Protection team includes:

 Mrs Trudi Bartle (Executive Principal). 


Mr James Phillips (Head of Academy).















Mrs Jayne Winstanley















As a parent you may be worried about how extremism and radicalisation might affect your child.  Here at Craven Primary Academy we are taking this extremely seriously and have trained all staff in looking for signs.


Please look at the leaflet below for further information for you as parents.
