Bousfield Primary School

Safeguarding

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people as required under the Education Act 2002 and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Bousfield Primary School will ensure that:

  • The policies and procedures adopted by the School are fully implemented and followed by all staff.
  • Sufficient resources and time are allocated to enable the designated safeguarding lead, deputies and other staff to discharge their responsibilities, including taking part in strategy discussions and other
    inter-agency meetings, and contributing to the assessment of children.
  • All staff and volunteers feel able to raise concerns about poor or unsafe practice in regard to children, and such concerns are addressed sensitively and effectively in a timely manner in accordance with agreed ‘whistle blowing’ practices.
  • Pupils are educated about the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using information technology as highlighted by e-Safety.
