At Bramble Infant School and Nursery we aim to ensure that all children are protected from harm and have their welfare and pastoral needs met so they are able to fulfil their potential. We have policies, systems and procedures in place to make sure that this happens, please see our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy for more information about how we do this.

Safeguarding in the Curriculum
Teaching children how to keep themselves safe, in an age appropriate way, is a key part of our curriculum. We regularly talk to the children about how they can do this and who they can get help from. The children in our School Council worked together to produce a ‘Keeping Safe’ poster to display around the school to inform everyone what to do to keep themselves safe.
