We follow Child Protection and safeguarding Procedures from Keeping Children Safe in Education and work with the Keeping Bristol Safe Partnership.  We follow our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy which can be found in the policy section of the website.  You will see from this policy that we have systems in place to share concerns regarding children’s welfare, child sexual exploitation, Prevent/radicalisation and female genital mutilation with our DSLs, parents and relevant external agencies.  Part of our legal duty to safeguard our children may include us consulting with and taking advice from police or Children’s social care.

If you have any concerns about the welfare of a child you should speak to a member of the Safeguarding team or you can contact First Response on 0117 903 6444.
