The Brigg Infant School fully recognises its responsibilities for child protection and safeguarding and sees this aspect as the most important part of our work with children and their families. It is part of all aspects of our curriculum and life at school.
Our designated person to contact regarding any issue relating to safeguarding is Mrs A Spencer, Headteacher.
In her absence, contact deputy Mrs J Mackney or Mrs K Smith EYFS lead.
We are very proud of the following findings by OFSTED in July 2019...
"There is a strong safeguarding culture that permeates the school. Leaders are acutely aware of the issues facing vulnerable families.... Staff know pupils very well. ... Pupils are safe in school. Pupils say that they can speak to any adult about their concerns. Parents agree the school is a safe place for their children.""
Learning to Keep Safe; Safeguarding in our Curriculum
- In Autumn 2020 we learnt that PANTS ARE PRIVATE! This NSPCC unit is a fun way to learn about good and bad touches, secrets and who children can speak to if they need help.
We also loved the Pantosuarus Song, join in by CLICKING HERE!
- In Spring 2020, we all joined in with National Online Safety Week. We had live assemblies at home and at school with Mrs Spencer and we learnt a helpful song called 'Ask For Help' with Buddy The Dog.
