At Broke Hall Primary School, we regard the safeguarding of children as our main priority.
We believe that we all have the right to be happy, to be safe and to learn. We all have the responsibility to make this happen.
We will ensure that:
- The welfare of the child remains paramount
- All children whatever their age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin, religious beliefs and/ or sexual identity have the right to be protected from harm
- All suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately
We have a duty of care to refer to Social Services if there are any concerns regarding safeguarding. In some circumstances this may happen without the consent or knowledge of parents/carers.
All Staff at Broke Hall are trained to government requirements related to safeguarding children, this includes our volunteers. Four designated members of staff and a designated governor have received full training in respect of safeguarding issues.

We support our children’s use of the internet and seek to underpin their knowledge of safe use and protection. We provide our students with an awareness of how to stay safe online both in the school environment and beyond.
