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.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website.
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 Lead is Mrs Acres (Head Teacher).
Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads are Mrs Weatherby (Deputy Head), Miss Simpson (Assistant Head) and Mrs Vass (Pastoral care and parent support lead)
Our safeguarding governor is Mrs J Marsh. The Local Authority designated safeguarding lead is Mr Rob Wratten.
