Safeguarding statement

Bloxham Primary School is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

We undertake rigorous checks on all staff and volunteers who work in our school and maintain a central record documenting these. Staff involved in recruitment and selection of employees are trained in safer recruitment, and all our staff and volunteers are required to complete relevant Child Protection and Safeguarding training to enable them to keep children safe from harm.

Our Designated Leads for Safeguarding are Lisa Horton and Louise Thomas. They should be the first point of contact for any concerns around safeguarding and concerns linked to any child. They are both available in school. Ian Broome is our Safeguarding Governor, and he can also be contacted via the school office.

As part of our role to safeguard pupils, please be aware that, like all schools, we have a duty to share information with other agencies where there are any concerns about the safety or well-being of a child.

Our safeguarding policy is available to download via the link below, or you can request a paper copy via the school office.

If you are concerned about a child’s welfare out of school, please speak to the Headteacher, Lisa Horton (01295 720224) or contact the Oxfordshire Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) on 0345 050 7666.

If you have immediate concerns and think a child is in danger, you can call the police.
