The safeguarding procedures as set out in our Safeguarding Policy and also on the Cumberland CSCP website: https://cumbriasafeguardingchildren.co.uk must be followed if it is believed that a child is at risk  or suffering from significant harm.

In addition, the school will fully comply with national and local statutory duties and guidance.


If parents, carers, family or community members have any concerns they must report these concerns to the Cumberland Safeguarding Hub on:  Tel: 0333 240 1727 or e-mail safeguarding.hub@cumberland.gov.uk



Does this child need an immediate child protection response if so continue to report your concern to the Hub.  IF NOT:

  • Could this child be helped by an Early Help Plan?
  • Can I identify other professionals to contribute to and Early Help Plan?
  • If so please seek support from your own service advisor or the Early Help Team to work with the family to prevent escalation of need.

Alternatively, further information can be found and concerns can be reported to NSPCC | The UK children's charity | NSPCC
