Safeguarding and Child Protection

Safeguarding the wellbeing of pupils is a responsibility of everyone who works in a school. At Burston Primary School we have a number of robust procedures to ensure that children are kept safe. The designated safeguarding lead at Burston is Mr Carlyle. The alternate designated safeguarding lead is Miss Hart. The safeguarding governor is Mrs Chamberlain.

All staff receive regular safeguarding updates. We take any concerns about the wellbeing of a pupil extremely seriously and will treat any issue in accordance with our guidelines. These are set out in our safeguarding policy, which can be found in the ‘Policies’ section of our website. In this role we receive excellent support both from the Sapientia Education Trust and also Norfolk County Council.

In addition to the training that staff receive, pupils are taught about safeguarding through the curriculum and also national initiatives, for example those run by the NSPCC
