At Brandesburton Primary we recognise that your child is our responsibility and concern.  We want to work in partnership with you, and discuss with you, any concerns that we may have and you may have.

It is a priority to inform and involve you at every stage in your child’s time at the school.

The ER Safeguarding Children Board has laid down the procedures we follow, and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this for the safety of all.

If you want to know more about our procedures or the policy, please speak to Mrs Ledingham, our Headteacher, Mrs Platten, our deputy Child Protection Co-ordinator, or Mr P White who is the Governor with responsibility for Child Protection 

We have strong links to many agencies that can help parents in times of difficulty and welcome the opportunity to support our families.  All information is dealt with in the strictest of confidence.

Since the first priority is your child’s welfare, there may be rare occasions when our concern about your child means that we have to consult other agencies even before we contact you.

Mrs J Ledingham, Headteacher  Child Protection Co-ordinator

Mrs K Platten, Deputy Child Protection Co-ordinator
