The Bishop Wand Church of England School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in our School. We believe that students have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse. Staff are vigilant for signs of any student in distress and are confident about applying the processes to avert and alleviate any such problems.

Safeguarding is about ensuring that everyone is safe from harm, bullying, people who could abuse, discrimination or harassment. Bishop Wand believes that all students and staff should feel safe in our environment.

If your child is ever concerned about safety or well-being or about a friend, they should talk to their Head of Year or one of the School's Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL).
