Bishop’s Hull Primary School is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all pupils in our school. We believe that all pupils have the right to learn in an environment that caters for their needs, removes barriers and protects them from all types of abuse. Our staff are vigilant and proactive when responding to welfare concerns for our pupils and are trained to use safeguarding and child protection procedures, when required, to keep children safe. If you have a concern, you can speak to any member of staff, or ask for someone from the safeguarding team.
All members of staff are vetted against national safeguarding procedures before being allowed to work in school. At least one member of every interview panel has undertaken safer recruitment training to ensure that best practices and all necessary checks are carried out.
Our e-safety co-ordinator is Miss Clare Jennings
All can be contacted via the main school office on 01823 331624
If you have a concern about the welfare of a child please contact the main school office on 01823 331624 and ask to speak to a member of the safeguarding team.

This is no doubt an unsettling time for all of us, and the team at Bishop's Hull are committed to supporting you and your child.
Please see below a range of links to different sites which may help you to keep your child safe from potential harm. All of our staff are aware of the issues raised on these sites and are vigilant for signs that children may be at risk. All pupils are taught about e-safety throughout the school and we have links with Simon Parry, our local PCSO who also talks with pupils about all aspects of personal safety.
