Our aim is for everyone within the Ebor Academy Trust to be safe to Work, Learn and Grow together.
We believe that there are three key aspects to safeguarding and that there should be clear policies, guidance, lines of accountability and monitoring of each aspect.
These form the basis of the Academy policy and the structure of the safeguarding team in each school. The name, role and photograph of each member of staff in the safeguarding team are displayed in each school.
The three aspects are:
- Safe children
- Safe adults
- Safe environment
Lakeside Primary Academy is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors promoting a climate where children and adults feel confident about sharing concerns which they have about their own safety or the well-being of others.

Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (Mash)
MASH is a multi-agency team made up of representatives from a range of services, including Social Care, Early Help, Police and Health Professionals and is a single point of contact for all concerns about children. This partnership approach will make it easier to get children, young people and families to get the right level of support as quickly as possible. The MASH team can be contacted on 01904 551900 and more information is available on their website.
Operation Encompass has been designed to provide early reporting to schools of any domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of normal school hours and that might have had an impact on a child attending school the following day. This information will be shared at the earliest opportunity between Monday to Friday and, when an incident occurs on a Friday, Saturday or a Sunday, the police will contact us the following Monday.
