Safeguarding at Bushvalley

At Bushvalley we recognise that happy children are the best learners and so we aim to provide a comfortable and safe learning environment.

At Bushvalley Primary School we provide effective safeguarding that will:

Promote the welfare for the child / young person;

Prevent harm occurring through early identification of risk and appropriate, timely intervention; and

Protect children and young people from harm when it is required.
