Our Safeguarding

Welcome to Blenheim Primary School

"We as a school take our responsibility to safeguard all our students from all types of bullying and sexual harassment, violence, and abuse seriously, working hard to assist our learners to have respect for each other.  During activities such as lessons, tutor time, assemblies and PSHE/RSE we work to instil values and continue to provide information on how to have positive and healthy relationships.  

The information shared on Everyone's Invited website shows there is a wider issue that we all need to work together to resolve, including parents/carers, social media outlets, the police, courts and students, as the testimonials from around the country are very concerning and not acceptable.  We cannot discuss the details of any safeguarding matters publicly, but we have very stringent measures in place to investigate any reports so that appropriate action can be taken where required and our school community kept safe. We encourage all young people to report sexual offences to the school and to the police"

 The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment.

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.  Our Safeguarding Policy can be found on our website (Our School\Policies)
