At Bovington we believe that everyone should be treated equally and accepted openly. Staff and Governors work towards ensuring that all aspects of school life are "fair" and "safe" for children, staff, parents/carers and the wider community.
We have a range of policies in place in school that are designed to achieve a fair, safe and harmonious environment. Policies provide guidance on the expected acceptable standards of behaviour of all staff, governors, children and adult visitors to our school.
The safety of our children is something that we take very seriously at Bovington Primary School. We are proactive in this area and work with other agencies such as the social care and safeguarding teams, the police and health representatives through multiagency partnership often led by the school.Through raising awareness and regular review of incidents, regular training and supervision we want to ensure Bovington is a place where children and adults are safe from harm, know that staff have their welfare at heart and are willing to listen when they want to discuss a problem.
E-Safety is an area of Safeguarding that deals specifically with the acceptable behaviour needed to achieve a safe online community as well as teaching users of the internet, social media and connected devices what they should if they encounter difficulties.
To discuss any safeguarding issues, please speak to your child's teacher, a phase leader or Kris Winthorpe, the school designated senior professional and our designated child protection officer.
