Keeping Children Safe

At Bressingham Primary children’s health, safety and welfare are a key priority and we take our responsibilities in these matters very seriously.

All members of staff hold a current DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) certificate and are regularly trained in safeguarding and Child Protection matters. Governors and other volunteers are also DBS checked and trained when they have regular contact with children.

All new members of staff undertake rigorous pre-employment checks and our recruitment follows the Safer Recruitment guidelines to ensure all of our adults are safe to work with children.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is the Headteacher- Mrs Dawn Gudde

Mrs Joanna Lewis is the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead.

Please refer all safeguarding concerns to them.

Safeguarding Governor –  Mrs Lorraine Cook

Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass has been set-up to help schools to provide support to children who had been present at incidents of domestic violence. The links below provide more detailed information.

Norfolk Safeguarding Children’s Board

Every Local Authority in the country has a Local Safeguarding Children Board in place to make sure that children are protected from harm and that their welfare is promoted. In Norfolk, the Norfolk Safeguarding Children Board (NSCB) is made up of statutory and voluntary partners who work with families and children. We are an independent organisation and make sure that people working with children carry out their safeguarding responsibilities as required by the law.
