Safeguarding at Bere Regis Primary and Pre-School.

At Bere Regis Primary and Pre-School, we consider keeping our children safe of the utmost importance. It is the duty and responsibility of everyone to safeguard and promote the welfare of children in out school. Effective safeguarding of children and young people should ensure that; we are protecting them from abuse or neglect, getting the right support in place as early as possible and creating an environment in which children and young people feel safe. We all have a personal responsibility to notice when a child or young person may be at risk of harm and pass our concerns on to someone who can act to protect them.

Our staff and governors have been trained on safeguarding and have taken part in Prevent and FGM training. Please take time to look at our Child Protection Policy and our Staff Code of Conduct on our school policies page.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate in contacting Mrs Rachael Brown (Designated Safeguarding Lead), Mrs Paula Dale or Miss Liz Clarke (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads) who will be able to provide you with support and advice.

If you have concern surrounding a child’s safety contact our local Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) on 01202 228866.

Bere Regis Primary and Pre-School values the support of parents and the community to ensure the safety of our children we have strict volunteering procedures. If you are interested in becoming a regular volunteer in our school please contact Mrs Paula Dale (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead) via the school office.

The ‘Prevent’ Strategy

Prevent is about safeguarding people and communities from the threat of terrorism.

You may have heard about the Government’s ‘Prevent’ strategy which covers all types of terrorism and extremism, including the extreme right wing, violent Islamist groups and other causes.

From July 2015 all schools (as well as other organisations) have a duty to safeguard children from radicalisation and extremism. This page is designed to provide parents with information about the strategy and what we are doing as a school to respond to this strategy.
