The safety and wellbeing of all the children at Great Bedwyn Primary School is of paramount importance and we have clear and concise procedures in place to ensure that every child and adult is safe. We meet all statutory requirements and regularly monitor safeguarding provision. We expect all staff, volunteers, parents, carers and the wider school community to share our commitment to safeguarding our children.
Our Designated safeguarding lead (DSL) for Child Protection is our Principal, Michelle Perrett.
Our Deputy Designated safeguarding leads (DDSLs) for Child Protection are Louise Carlisle and Katharine Burrett
