Supporting our Families

Dane Royd school has always worked closely with its family and the community. As well as providing support for staff and pupils, we are always mindful of signposting our families to the wide services available in the Wakefield district. 

As always, we would encourage parents to speak to a member of the DSL team who can also support and direct to the correct services.

Domestic Abuse

domestic abuse isn't sweet.png

Domestic Abuse is any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality. The abuse can include, but is not limited to:

  • psychological

  • physical

  • sexual

  • financial

  • emotional

It can happen in any relationship, and even after the relationship has ended. Both men and women can be abused or abusers. There does not need to be violence for it to be an abusive relationship.

Domestic abuse can seriously harm children and young people. Witnessing domestic abuse is child abuse, and teenagers can suffer domestic abuse in their relationships.
