'A love of learning for life in all its fullness'


Safeguarding comes first at the school. Only when our children are in a secure, happy environment will they thrive and learn. Our Head Teacher, Mr Priestley, is the safeguarding lead. Mrs Corrie is the deputy safeguarding lead and Sylvia Evans is our safeguarding governor.  If you have any questions about safeguarding please contact us.

Are you concerned about a child?

If you are concerned that a child or young person is in an emergency situation you should contact the police urgently on 999.

Operation Encompass is a partnership between police and schools, Crosby Ravensworth school has joined the scheme.   

One of the principles of Operation Encompass is  that all incidents of domestic abuse are shared with schools, not just those where an offence can be identified.  Every school appoints a trained Key Adult  – the Key Adult is the person who receives information about police attended Domestic Abuse incidents.  The Key Adult will be notified prior to the start of the next school day that the police have attended an incident of domestic abuse. This timely information sharing  enables appropriate support to be provided for that child so that all interactions, from when the child first arrives at the school gates, are of a positive nature.

The Key Adult is trained as a Designated Safeguarding Lead and should attend a Key Adult Briefing.
