Everyone working in or for our school service shares an objective to help keep children and young people safe by contributing to:
Cavendish Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the well being of all of its pupils. Each pupil’s welfare is of paramount importance. We recognise that some children may be especially vulnerable to abuse. We recognise that children who are abused or neglected may find it difficult to develop a sense of self worth and to view the world in a positive way. Whilst at school, their behaviour may be challenging. We recognise that some children who have experienced abuse may harm others. We will always take a considered and sensitive approach in order that we can support all of our pupils.
If you have any concerns or worries please contact the School Office to arrange a meeting with one of us.

Internet and mobile phones are an important part of everyday life for children an young people. Used correctly they are an exciting source of communication and information. All children at Cavendish receive comprehensive teaching on online safety. We have clear scheme of work regarding online safety linked to our ICT curriculum and work with outside agencies to deliver specific teaching about certain aspects of online safety. For example we work with West Yorkshire Police to deliver Social media training to all pupils in KS2.
At school we also have themed events around online safety for example ‘Safer Internet Day.’
