Safeguarding is of paramount importance to us here at Beeston Fields Primary and Nursery School. We EMPOWER our children, staff and wider community to ensure that signs of abuse are acted upon swiftly and children and adults are equipped to deal with associated risks.
In our school we benefit from 5 specially trained DSLs (Designated Safeguarding Leads). These trained professionals support all of our staff and volunteers to act upon the Child Protection and Safeguarding policies of our school. These policies can be found in the 'Policies' section of our website, as well as information for parents on managing risks.
We use our comprehensive PSHE programme to directly teach about how to stay safe online and offline (programmes can be found in the 'Curriculum' section of the website) which is enhanced by work with the NSPCC, our local PSCO, LGBTQ+ groups and the wider educational community.
Children know how to 'Speak up, Stay safe' and they revisit the NSPCC 'Pants' story annually to reiterate the importance of personal safety and well-being.
Mental Health First Aiders work alongside our Pastoral Lead to ensure that mental health issues are supported. We use a counselling service to support children who have encountered trauma and our specialist Pastoral Team is made up of professionals skilled in: bereavement counselling, ELSA, emotion coaching and attachment awareness.
If you have any concerns about bullying we would urge you to contact us immediately to enable us to swiftly intervene, support and address the issues.

If you require support please visit the anti-bullying alliance website for further guidance.
