At Old Buckenham Primary School we take safeguarding and child protection very seriously.

Using the Norfolk training materials, staff agreed that safeguarding is about

  • child protection
  • a listening school
  • health and safety
  • governance
  • whistle-blowing
  • staff recruitment
  • staff codes of conduct
  • the school building
  • the school curriculum, including internet safety
  • SEND and inclusion
  • attendance and punctuality
  • behaviour management and anti bullying policy

Mrs H. Mitchell is the Delegated Senior Lead (DSL) for Safeguarding in our school and Mrs J. Sydney is the alternate Designated Safeguarding Lead.

A copy of our school policies for safeguarding can be found below or on display in the school foyer. There is also a list of staff training and contact telephone numbers should you wish to contact a helpline or the Local Authority.

A short film which highlights the roles schools and adults play in keeping children safe can be viewed here:

From January 2017 the school has been linked to Operation Encompass – this is a Norfolk joint agency protocol for domestic abuse and will provide schools who have signed up with notifications. Please see further information here and a copy of the letter sent to parents here. 

Online Safety

We joined in with Safer Internet Day. This year it was all about ‘be the Change. Unite for a better internet’. Children were asked to think about how they use apps and photos while online.

Here is the link to the website where you can find a short film for parents to watch and then use a conversation starter.
