Safeguarding

Safeguarding in the Bramford and Somersham Federation is considered everyone’s responsibility. Our Federation aims to create the safest environment where the best interests of our pupils are considered at all times and within which every pupil has the opportunity to achieve. Our Federation recognises the contribution it can make in ensuring that all of our pupils feel that they will be listened to and have appropriate action taken in relation to any concerns they may raise. 

                               

   

We will do this by:

          • seeking to establish effective working relationships with parents/carers
          • providing offers of early help for our pupils and their families
          • endeavouring to work in partnership with other agencies
          • developing and providing activities and opportunities throughout our curriculum that will help to equip our pupils with the skills they need.  This will include materials and learning experiences that will encourage our pupils to develop essential life skills and protective behaviours.  

 It is the responsibility of the Governing Body to ensure that all staff and volunteers are properly vetted to make sure they are safe to work with the pupils who attend our school and that the school has procedures for handling allegations of abuse made against members of staff (including the  Executive Headteacher and volunteer helpers). The Governing Body ensure that there is a Named Governor and a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) who has lead responsibility for dealing with all safeguarding issues in our school.
