At Buglawton Primary School, the safety and well being of our pupils is at the heart of our work. This means we take child protection very seriously.
Alison Kennerley is the Safeguarding lead in school with Richard Jervis and Sam Murray as Deputy Safeguarding leads. The Safeguarding governor is George Hayes. If you are concerned about a child, you should speak to one of them who will advise a way forward.
All staff (teachers, teaching assistants, kitchen staff, midday assistants, admin staff, the caretaker and cleaner) complete Basic Awareness of Safeguarding Training every three years with an annual refresher being delivered by the school's Designated Safeguard Lead. All adults in school are required to wear a Buglawton Primary School identification badge and must electronically sign in each day in the reception area. Visitors to our school are required to electronically sign in at the office on arrival.
All staff, governors, students and volunteers (who are left alone with pupils), undertake a DBS check in school. DBS records are kept on the Single Cenral Record in the school office. Any visitors to the school are also supervised by staff members to safeguard our children.
If you have any concerns or notice anything that you feel needs to be reported to someone then please speak to the headteacher. If the headteacher is not available and you have an immediate concern then please speak to the deputy headteacher.
