Woodhouse West Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all our staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her/their parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.

In addition to our bespoke Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy, Woodhouse West Primary School adheres to Working Together 2018 which makes it clear that education settings must comply with its requirements, with the current version of Keeping Children Safe in Education and with any additional requirements placed on them by their local safeguarding partnership.
Woodhouse West Primary School complies with the Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership (SCSP) requirements. Their website, core offer, guidance and expectations are available via the link below.
In Sheffield we have a number of ways to support children, young people and their families.
Please read this leaflet below for more information.
How our setting safeguards children
The 'Educate against Hate' website offers advice and guidance aimed at keeping children and young people safe against radicalisation and extremism.
We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

We take bullying very seriously at Woodhouse West and endeavour to raise awareness in our school so that children are quick to recognise what bullying is, how it affects people and what they can do about it.
Activities have included:
- Anti-bullying posters made by the children.
- Online safety sessions about cyber bullying, how to recognise it and how to deal with it.
- Crucial crew sessions on how to deal with peer pressure and bullying.
- Assemblies where the theme is how school can tackle bullying.
- Stories and poems about anti-bullying.
- Anti-bullying charters for classrooms.
