Keeping Everyone Safe

At Shade

Keeping everyone at safe in our community is the responsibility of us all.

Some of us have special jobs that help:


Mrs Boddy, our crossing patrol, helps us to cross the Rochdale Road safely.

Mrs Barnes and Mrs Battersby in our School Office check that any visitors to the school should be here, keep all our records and registers up to date and make the money is looked after properly.

Mr Pickering, our Site Manager, makes sure that our building and grounds are safely maintained. He keeps a watchful eye on the car park and when we have any contractors carrying out work on the site.

Mrs Sutcliffe is our Information Risk Officer, and works with everyone else to make sure that the technology we use is used safely.

Mrs Clarkson is our Senior Designated Person and has completed training in safeguarding/child protection and safer recruitment.

Miss Hirst, Mrs Clough and Miss Bellamy-Brown are also Designated Safeguarding Leaders.

Mrs Hatfield is our designated governor for safeguarding and safeguarding/child protection.

All classteachers and teaching assistants have completed safeguarding and child protection training.

Mrs Clarkson is responsible for reporting to Governors on the effectiveness of our safeguarding and child protection procedures and Governors are responsible for ensuring the school carries out its duties.
