The Designated Safeguarding Leads at Springwater School are Andrew Sudron (Deputy Headteacher) and Sarah Edwards (Headteacher). If you have concerns about a child's welfare please contact them.

“Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.”

Keeping Children Safe in Education, DfE, 2023


Springwater School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. All North Yorkshire schools, including Springwater School, follow the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (NYSCP) procedures.


Please see our Child Protection Policy in the Policies area of the website for more detailed information about safeguarding and child protection at Springwater School.
