Branfil Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Everybody who works for the school is expected to share and promote this commitment and to have, or acquire, the relevant abilities, skills and knowledge to carry it out. If staff or visitors have any safety or welfare concerns about any of our children they should report them, as soon as possible, to:
Mrs Metcalfe is also the SENCO (special educational needs coordinator) and the designated person for Looked After Children.
Outside of school, anyone can report a concern about a child. The safety and welfare of children – or child protection – is everybody’s business.
You could be a neighbour, friend, parent, relative, child-minder, teacher, doctor or working for any organisation which has contact with children and young people.
In an emergency please dial 999.
