Stakesby School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. All North Yorkshire schools, including Stakesby School, follow the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board procedures. The school will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their child/ren. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Social Care and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with Child Protection procedures). The school will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents. The school’s child protection policy is available here.

The following links are packed with information to help keep children safe. If you are worried about a child, there are links where you can discuss or report  your concerns. You can also come and talk to us. Any member of staff will be happy to talk with you privately and will make sure that your concerns are passed on. The person in charge of Child Safeguarding (the 'Designated Safeguard Lead') is our Headteacher Mr Roy Gunning. He can also be contacted directly at school using any of our contact channels. We also have a Designated Safeguarding Governor, Mr Mark Young who can be contacted via the school office.

When a drone visited Stakesby!

Paul from YorkshireDroneServices.com recently visited Stakesby with his drone to take some images of the children spelling out the word 'GOOD' in celebration of our recent Ofsted success. Year 5 used problem solving techniques in a maths lesson to work out the area that the children had to stand in and how the children and letters would be arranged. A huge 'Thank You' to Paul for his services and patience and keep an eye out in the Whitby Gazette for the images!
