Safeguarding at Buckland Primary School
At Buckland Primary school we believe that we all have a role to play in protecting children and young people from child abuse and neglect.
Many people do not act because they’re worried about being wrong.
You don’t have to be absolutely certain; if you’re concerned a child is being abused or their safety is at risk, speak to someone either at school or via your local council. You could be providing the missing piece of information that is needed to keep a child safe.
Child abuse. If you think it, report it.
