Bushmead Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.  To achieve our commitment, we will ensure continuous development and improvement of robust safeguarding processes and procedures that promote a culture of safeguarding amongst our staff and volunteers.

We are committed to inspiring, challenging and safeguarding our pupils, enabling them to become:

  •  Successful learners, who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve.
  • Confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.
  • Responsible citizens who will make a positive contribution, both socially and economically,  to society.


The designated safeguarding lead for Bushmead is Steve Down (Headteacher)


All adults who work or volunteer in school have a responsibility to read and understand all safeguarding policies. This expectation is clearly laid out in the Bushmead Guide for Volunteers and to specifically read the DfE booklet: Keeping Children Safe in Education
