'Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children.' - Keeping Children Safe in Education
Aspin Park Academy is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors. We promote a climate where students and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others.
Anyone with concerns about the safety of a student MUST report it to our designated Safeguarding lead or team:
- Designated Safeguarding Lead - Headteacher, Sharon Robertson
- Deputy Safeguarding Lead - Kate Klippel, Helen Windsor, Mark Spindlow
- Safeguarding Governor - Gordon Hay
To report any safeguarding concerns please contact our safeguarding team using the school's email or telephone number.

Our school has been given the opportunity to take part in a new project that will run jointly between all schools, academies and colleges in York and North Yorkshire. This new project, 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 our premises 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.
