Kirkby-in-Malhamdale United V.A Primary School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. All North Yorkshire schools, including Kirkby-in-Malhamdale Primary School, follow the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board procedures. The school will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their child/ren. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Social Care and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with Child Protection procedures). The school will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents. The school’s child protection policy is available in the policies section of the web site.
