Everyone at Nether Edge Primary School is passionate about and committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff and visitors to share this commitment. 

Our staff are trained at regular intervals and are aware of how to keep our pupils safe and what signs to look for. Our pupils are encouraged to share any concerns they have.

We are fully committed to ensuring consistent effective procedures support families, children and staff who are part of our school.

Being in SHAPE


Visits and experiences are planning throughout school and are lot of fun.

These range from a visit to the park in nursery, to a two night residential visit to Scarborough in Y6; a visit from a Stone Age expert, to a trip to Wakefield to study the work of Barbara Hepworth. 

Experiences are varied and are a great way to enrich learning.

We carefully plan the costs of any visits so that these are spread throughout a child's time at school. We make the most of the local area so that children really know where they live and what it has to offer, as well as keeping costs down.

Pupil Leadership

We develop pupils as responsible citizens!

Taking a role as a leader in our school is a fantastic opportunity for children to develop character, to act responsibly, respectfully and to make a positive contribution to their school.

Children have the opportunity to apply for a range of roles in school, each of which has a real impact on school life.
