Safeguarding

Coronavirus and School Closures

 

As of March 20th 2020 the school will only be open for children of key workers and some vulnerable children. The expectation is that if the child can be safely cared for at home they should remain at home as this is the safest environment for them, and also prevents large numbers of children gathering in the school environment. If you have a concern about the welfare of your own children or the welfare of other children during this time we have set up a dedicated phone number which you can call or text, it will be monitored between 10 - 4 daily and if we can support you we will. Please note we are unable to give medical advice and guidance on this line. 

 

Please call or text 07921 384330

 

As usual if you have an immediate concern about the safety of a child please call 999. If you have a concern about a child outside of school, or are having difficulty in managing your own child, you can ring Somerset Direct on:

0300 123 2224

 

This is no doubt an unsettling time for all of us, and the team at Bishop's Hull are committed to supporting you when we can, but this will depend on the ever changing situations and the staffing levels that we are able to maintain . Best wishes to all families.

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. 

Protecting Children from Potential Harm

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.
