Safeguarding is everyone's concern. 

Everyone at Bearwood has safeguarding at the forefront of their work - we are not complacent and we are always vigilant.

Staff are regularly trained on safeguarding and have refresher training as part of regular staff meetings.  Visitors to Bearwood are advised of our safeguarding procedures and are made aware of our Mobile Phone Policy.  Pupils and parents at our school are kept updated on safeguarding initiatives, so that we are all working together to ensure the physical and emotional safety of the children in our care.

Safeguarding Lead: Funmi Alder
