Safeguarding at Brampton Village Primary

At Brampton Village Primary School we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we expect all staff, volunteers, parents and visitors to share this commitment.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment.

Designated Safeguarding Lead                       Mr Allen (Headteacher)

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead          Mrs Cooper (Deputy Headteacher)

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead          Mrs Pettitt (SENCo)

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 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. 

All matters relating to Safeguarding and Child Protection should be dealt with by one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads. If they are not available please contact a member of the Office staff.

If you believe a child is at risk or they have disclosed something to you that raises a concern please contact one of Designated Safeguarding Leads.


Photographs and Videos

Whilst lots of parents and carers really enjoy seeing photos and videos of their children’s school life we are very mindful of our duty of care towards all our pupils. We take the issue of safeguarding very seriously and this includes the use of photographic and video images.

Any photographs or videos taken by parents, carers and relatives at school productions, sports days or other events are for the enjoyment of individual families. They must not be used in any way that could potentially place a child at risk. This would include publishing images in any form of print or on the internet including social networking sites. This is emphasised before concerts and shows etc.

We understand that in exceptional circumstances a parent or carer may not wish their child to be photographed or videoed in this way. If this is the case then please contact the Headteacher to discuss how this can be best achieved.


Being safe online

We all have a key role in helping all our children to be safe online and to know how to use it responsibly.

There is lots of useful and important information available on the school website on the ‘e safety’ tab.

If you have any concerns with regards to e-safety please do contact the school and we will be happy to discuss and advise.
