Shipley CE is committed to safeguarding and promoting the well-being of all our pupils.  Each pupil's welfare is of paramount importance and we expect all members of the school community to share this commitment. 

Mrs A Smith is our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).  She is the lead person in our school and the person you should contact if you have concerns about a child.  She is supported by two other deputy DSLs; Mrs M Bowers and Mrs K Hoyle. All of these adults are available via the school office.  

We are supported by our safeguarding governor. 

Our Academy Trust, BDAT, carries out regular safeguarding audits to help us to keep our policy and practice current and to identify any areas for improvement. 

More information on the ways we keep the children in our school safe is available in our Safeguarding Policy on the School Policies page of this website. 


Here at Shipley CE we actively support the Prevent Agenda. 

Prevent is a Government strategy designed to prevent extremism that might lead to terrorism or support of extremist causes.  The Prevent strategy covers all forms of terrorism and extremism, including extreme right wing, left wing, animal rights, environmental and splinter groups.  More information on this strategy can be found on the link below. 

Contact School

If you have any questions or concerns about the Prevent strategy and what it means for your child, please contact the school.
