Stop Abuse Together

 The Federation of Holy Trinity CE Schools, Ripon are committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. All North Yorkshire schools, including the Holy Trinity Schools, follow the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children's Board procedures. The schools will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their child. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the schools will discuss concerns with Social Care and/or the police without parental knowledge (in accordance with Child Protection procedures). The schools will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents. The school’s child protection policy is available on the policies page of this website.

For further information, help and advice please also see the following website.

 Child Safety

The ChildLine Schools Service has previously visited all children in years 5 & 6 to provide them with key messages about keeping safe.  It can be beneficial for these messages to be reinforced at home. The NSPCC has developed some guides for all parents of primary school aged children to speak to their child about keeping safe – called the Underwear rule.

You can find guides to the Underwear Rule to help you have simple conversations about keeping safe from abuse at www.nspcc.org.uk/underwear.

You can speak to an advisor for further advice or request a hard-copy guide for parents and carers by phoning the NSPCC Helpline on 0808 800 5000. You can also visit www.nspcc.org.uk/parents for other advice on keeping your child safe.

ChildLine Schools Service

The NSPCC Helpline - 0808 800 5000 - is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide advice and support to anyone concerned about a child's welfare. Children and young people can call ChildLine confidentially at any time on 0800 1111. Calls to ChildLine and the helpline are free.
