Bowness Community Primary School

Safeguarding / Child Protection

Safeguarding and Child Protection are everyone's responsibility.  However, Mrs Unsworth (Designated Safeguarding Lead) and Mr Evans (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead) are the assigned members of staff if anyone has a concern regarding any child.




Child protection is central and vital to everything that we do here at Bowness.

Here are some links to our key policies and resources that we use to keep all members of school aware of how to keep children safe.
