Bishop Wilson C of E Primary school is committed to the safeguarding and welfare of all pupils who attend our school. Everyone has a responsibility to make sure that children within the school are kept safe at all times. We have policies in place to protect all pupils, and all staff have up to date safeguarding training.
All staff, including supply staff, regular visitors, students, tutors and volunteers are subject to DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checks. This is to ensure that unsuitable people are prevented from working with children.
New staff members are recruited following procedures outlined in ‘Safeguarding Children’ and ‘Safer Recruitment in Education’ Jan 07. There is always someone who has completed the Safer Recruitment Training on every interview panel.
All parents are asked to give permission for appropriate photographs and short films of children to be made within their school life.
Parents can refuse permission at any time.
Staff wear identity badges to show their position in school. Visitors are asked to wear their visitors badge in a prominent position at all times.
Access to the School
During the day, the gates on to the playground are locked and entrance is through the office at the front of the school.
All visitors are requested to sign in at the office before entering school.

"Safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose and records are detailed and of a high quality. Safeguarding procedures are thorough and meet statutory requirements. Governors are fully aware of their roles and responsibilities in relation to safeguarding and talk with a great deal of knowledge about statutory procedures and how to keep children safe"

"Regular and appropriate training for staff is in place and there are clear procedures in place to report concerns. Multi-agency meetings are well attended and minutes are recorded in child protection files. The child and family support team works closely with families and keeps safeguarding tracking sheets to keep track of vulnerable pupils.
The vast majority of parents feel that you and the staff keep their children safe and well looked after. Pupils also say they feel safe in school"
