Keeping Children Safe

At Bressingham Primary children's health, safety and welfare are a key priority and we take our responsibilities in these matters very seriously.

All members of staff hold a current DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) certificate and are regularly trained in safeguarding and Child Protection matters. Governors and other volunteers are also DBS checked and trained when they have regular contact with children.

All new members of staff undertake rigorous pre-employment checks and our recruitment follows the Safer Recruitment guidelines to ensure all of our adults are safe to work with children.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is the Headteacher - Mr Gavin King

Mrs Dawn Gudde is also deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead.

Please refer all safeguarding concerns to them.

Safeguarding Governor - Mr Kristian Wimshurst
