Child Protection and Safeguarding


Dane Bank Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment.


Operation Encompass

From the 21st January 2019 Dane Bank Primary School is implementing a new project that will run jointly between schools and Greater Manchester Police. This project is called Operation Encompass.  It aims to support children who are affected by domestic violence by ensuring that their school is informed. This allows the school to support the children. If you have any other questions about this project, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
