Burhill Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

All staff, including supply staff, volunteers and governors, must ensure that they are aware of the school’s child protection policy and procedures. Every member of staff must attend training, to which governors are also be invited. Parents and carers are welcome to read our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy, which is available on our website or via the school office.

The best interests of the children will always be our priority. As such, there are times we will need to record, monitor and share information with other agencies. We will share concerns about our pupils with the child’s parents/carers unless we have reason to believe that such a move would not be in the child’s best interest.          

Anyone who has concerns about the wellbeing of a child must report those concerns immediately to the school's Safeguarding Leads, either directly or via the school office. 

If your concerns relate to the actions or behaviour of a member of staff, please report this to one of the Safeguarding Leads. If the concern relates to the Safeguarding Leads, concerns should be reported to the Safeguarding Governor.
