Our Safeguarding Staff

Blisland Primary Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

The Health and Safety of all children is paramount. Parents and carers expect the school to provide a safe, secure and caring environment in which children can flourish. To meet this expectation, the school implements a wide range of measures and policies, including the School’s Safeguarding and Child Protection policy. Details of these can be found in the policies section on the school website.

We are committed to inspiring, challenging and safeguarding all our pupils. This is best achieved when we work together towards success.
