Meynell Primary School

Aspire, Believe, Explore, Achieve


Our school has a statutory responsibility to protect and promote the welfare of the children and young people in our care. 


We are committed to working closely with parents and carers for the benefit of our pupils. We also work with a range of professionals to support our pupils and their families to get the right help at the right time. 


Please be aware that during weekends and school holidays you will not be able to contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead or Designated Safeguarding Deputies. If you have any concerns about the welfare of a child or young person during these times, please contact the Sheffield Safeguarding Hub on 0114 2734855 (24-hour service). 


If you think a child or a young person is in immediate danger, please call Police on 999 at any time. 


If you are a child or young person and are worried or feel unsafe then you can get help from Childline, a free, private and confidential service where you can be you. You can chat online or on the phone, 0800 1111, any time.

Safeguarding Policies 

Operation Encompass 

Operation Encompass is an initiative which enhances communication between the police and schools where a child is at risk from domestic abuse. The purpose of the information sharing is to ensure schools have more information to support the safeguarding of children. By knowing that the child has had this experience, the school is in a better position to understand and be supportive of the child's needs and possible behaviours. Operation Encompass will complement existing safeguarding procedures. Please see the link below for further details:
