St Bernadette Catholic Primary School

Safeguarding at St. Bernadette

St Bernadette Catholic Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.


Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with their parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.


We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism. 


Our Designated Safeguarding Leads are Mrs Acres (Head Teacher)

and Mrs Vass (Pastoral care and parent support lead).


Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads are Mrs Weatherby (Deputy Head), Miss Simpson (Assistant Head)


Our safeguarding governor is Mrs J Marsh. The Local Authority designated safeguarding lead is Ms Hannah Ives.


We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment. Please click on the link below to find out more.
