At BVPS, the safeguarding and wellbeing of children is our highest priority.  This commitment is shared by all, and supported by regular training for all staff and volunteers and continuous monitoring by governors and the senior leadership team.

Our safeguarding team is:
Mrs Debbie Gregori Head Teacher and Designated Safeguarding Lead
Mrs Sarah Fletcher Assistant Head Teacher, Class Teacher and Deputy DSL
Mrs Suzie Whittick SENCO, Class Teacher & Deputy DSL
Miss Nicola Brown Pastoral and Welfare Administrator and Deputy DSL

Our safeguarding policy is currently under review.  Please find below the latest version of the statutory document Keeping Children Safe in Education, the guidance we follow.

If you have any concerns about a member of staff or a volunteer, please speak immediately to the head teacher or e-mail:

If you have any concerns about the head teacher, please contact Mr Geoff Markham, our Chair of Governors, via email:  Our safeguarding governor is Mrs Rebecca Moore.

Staff know pupils extremely well and have a deep understanding of any issues that may affect them. Leaders have ensured that systems are clear and helpful. As a result, referrals are dealt with quickly and information is collated effectively by leaders. Leaders vigilantly ensure that pupils and their families receive invaluable support when needed. Many pupils benefit from a range of therapies overseen by leaders.

Pupils successfully learn how to keep themselves safe online in ways which interest and engage them. Weekly assemblies teach pupils relevant and useful strategies in an age-appropriate way. For example, pupils in reception learn, through play with string, how personal information can quickly travel from one person to another around the world
