Safeguarding info for children
If someone is hurting you, doing things to you against your will or being mean to you, tell someone: your parents, your friends, trusted teachers or other staff at school. You should also speak to us if you are worried about someone else – a child or an adult.
At Rawdon Littlemoor, the staff with special training to help you to be safe are: Mr Allen, Mrs Jarvis and Mrs Beardwell. You don’t have to speak to those members of staff; any adult in school should be able to help you.
If you don’t wish to speak to someone in school, you have other choices:
If you are being bullied online, or if you have any concerns about things on the internet, speak to a trusted adult, call the police or use this link:

Information about Domestic Violence
Rawdon Littlemoor is part of a project that runs between all Leeds schools and West Yorkshire Police. The project has been established to support children who are resident in households where there are incidents of domestic violence and abuse. We know that children can be significantly physically or emotionally hurt by being either present in the house or directly witnessing an incident of domestic violence.
The Domestic violence and abuse school notification project has been designed to provide confidential notification to schools on any incidents of domestic violence and abuse which occur within a child’s household that might have an impact on a child whilst they are in school.
The project will ensure that a member of the school staff is trained to allow them to use the information that has been shared, in confidence, and ensure that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have been involved in or witnessed a domestic violence or abuse incident.
We are keen to offer the best support possible to our pupils and we believe this is extremely beneficial for all those involved.
