Lancasterian Primary School

  • A safe and welcoming learning community where:
  • - we all aim high;
  • - everyone is included;
  • - creativity is valued.



    Safeguarding and Child Protection are the most important part of everyone's job at Lancasterian Primary School.

    We expect everyone who works with our pupils to follow the guidelines set out within the schools Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy, whether they are a teacher, member of support staff, visitor or volunteer.

    Keeping our children safe

    The school operates a policy restricting unsupervised access to our pupils by those that have not been correctly vetted.

    All adults who work regularly with our pupils must undertake an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check (DBS), which must be completed before the commencement of working with our pupils.

    All visitors to the school must sign in at the office and wear a visitors badge at all times. Any unidentified adult in the school will be challenged.

    For more information; please view the schools safeguarding policy below.
