Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility at Headlands; this includes pupils, staff, parents, volunteers...EVERYONE.

Our curriculum explicitly teaches pupils how to keep safe. Regular, planned reminders are also shared during lessons, Collective Worship, assemblies or through inviting visitors in to school. 


Pupils are taught a variety of ways to alert an adult if they feel worried, sad or upset.



Everybody in school takes health and safety very seriously. If you see anything of concern, or something which could be improved, please mention it to a member of staff.


We follow all Kirklees Safeguarding Children Partnership procedures and have adopted their model Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy. You can view this policy by accessing our school policies page or by clicking on the link within this page.





All of our school staff receive regular safeguarding training.

Mr O'Dwyer is the Designated Safeguarding Lead and Mrs Lord, Mrs Cowling, Mrs Lewis and Mrs France are Deputy Safeguarding Leads.

Our Designated Safeguarding Leaders are available to listen to any concerns or worries that you may have. You can contact them through the main school office.

We are proud to be an Operation Encompass school.


Headlands CE JIN School also recognises that safeguarding against radicalisation and terrorism is no different from safeguarding against any other vulnerability.

The aim of PREVENT is to safeguard and support young people and adults who may be vulnerable to radicalisation, to stop them from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.
