Encouraging children to live healthy lifestyles and adopt safe practices is embedded in our school ethos and teaching.
Policies are in place to ensure that there is a consistent approach to practices throughout the school. Please see our E-Safety zone and Information and Policies page, including our Child Protection and Safeguarding policy for further details.
If the policy you require is not listed, please contact the school office team who will be happy to help.

If you’re worried that a child or young person is at risk or is being abused, click here.
As a school we also rigorously support Safeguarding and Child Protection and ensure effective procedures are in place throughout school, some of which are listed below:
We work closely with West Yorkshire Police to support children who live in households where there are incidents of domestic violence and abuse. Confidential information is provided 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. A member of the school staff (Mrs Jenkins), is trained to use the information that has been shared, in confidence, so that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children or their families. At Talbot Primary we aim to offer the best possible support to our children and we believe this is beneficial for all those involved.
