KEEPING CHILDREN SAFE
It is everybody’s responsibility to safeguard the health and welfare of all children.
All schools are required by the local Education Authority to draw up a policy on safeguarding and child protection which parents are welcome to read and discuss with us. This is also available on the school website.
We have a designated safeguarding lead (DSL) for child protection, this is the Headteacher—Kay Burke. If you have any safeguarding or welfare concerns, please ask to speak to the Headteacher.
We treat all safeguarding and child protection concerns seriously and with the utmost
sensitivity. It is part of our statutory duty as well as our pastoral responsibility to ensure that all
pupils are protected from harm. Because of day to day contact with children, schools are particularly well placed to see outward signs of abuse, changes in a child’s behaviour or failure to develop. Parents should be aware, therefore, that where it appears to a member of staff that a child may have been abused, the school is required to report their concern to the Children’s Social Care immediately. This is the responsibility of the school's DSL.
Mobile phones must not be used by parents and carers whilst on the school premises
We have a CCTV system installed in Bradley Nursery School.
