Safeguarding and Child Protection


There is nothing as important to us at Prince Bishops, or to you as parents, as the safety of your child. We ensure that:


  • all adults working with children are appropriately recruited and vetted, and receive appropriate training, guidance, support and supervision to undertake the effective safeguarding of pupils.
  • pupils are protected from bullying, racist abuse, harassment or discrimination of any kind including sexual orientation and gender.
  • health and safety policies and procedures are in place, including necessary risk assessments as well as regular checks on equipment and premises.
  • the school site is secure and the appropriate controls are in place for visitors to the school.
  • all visitors to the school must sign in and accept the school's code of conduct.
  • the needs of pupils with medical conditions are met.
  • child welfare and child protection concerns are identified and responded to.
  • the school works with key agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
  • children learn about personal safety and what they can do if they are worried about anything.



Child Protection is about protecting children at risk from abuse or neglect.  It also means helping children to grow up to be confident, healthy and happy.  


Most children enjoy generally happy childhood experiences within their own family. Unfortunately for some, this is not the case. Protecting children is everyone’s responsibility; if you are concerned about the safety of a child at Prince Bishops, you must inform one of the school's designated child protection officers, Mrs George (Headteacher) or Mrs Patchett (Deputy Headteacher) as soon as possible.  Alternatively, you can report concerns about any child or vulnerable adult to 'First Contact' on 03000 267979.
