Safeguarding Statement

Our Child Protection Commitment

Safeguarding at The Bedfont Primary School is everyone’s responsibility all of the time. All staff and visitors are expected to:

  • Establish and maintain an environment where school staff and volunteers feel safe, are encouraged to talk and are listened to when they have concerns about the safety and well-being of a child.
  • Ensure children know that there are adults in the school whom they can approach if they are worried.
  • Ensure that children are supported appropriately. This could include referral to Early Help services or specialist services if they are vulnerable or at risk of being abused and neglected.
  • Consider how children may be taught about safeguarding, including online safety, through teaching and learning opportunities, as part of providing a broad and balanced curriculum.
  • Maintain an attitude of ‘it could happen here’ and ‘professional curiosity’ where safeguarding is concerned.
  • Always act in the interests of the child and help to take an active part in develop a culture where Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.

If you are ever concerned about the safety or well‐being of someone at our school please talk to the school’s Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL):

DSL: Mr Davis (Headteacher) Mrs Swasbrook (Deputy Headteacher) Mr Chandler (Deputy Headteacher

The Nominated Safeguarding Governor: Mrs Hilbery
