Safeguarding & Child Protection

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as: 


  • protecting children from maltreatment 
  • preventing the impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development 
  • ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care, and 
  • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.


We take Safeguarding very seriously at Bildeston Primary School.


Should you have any concerns, Mrs L Healy is the Designated Safeguarding Lead and Mrs J Shaw is the Alternate Safeguarding Lead.


Mrs J Searle is the Governor responsible for child protection.


Mrs L Healy (Bildeston Primary School) is the Online Safety Lead and the Prevent Lead.


Any other Safeguarding concerns related to the Headteacher can be directed to Mrs H Williams, Chair of Governors by email (
