Keeping Children Safe in Education

Child Protection and Safeguarding

Here at Bentley West we are fully committed to the safeguarding of our children. It is important that pupils feel safe and supported in our school environment so that they are able to do their best and achieve their true potential.

Every member of staff at Bentley West, regardless of role has an in depth awareness of child protection and the importance of this is threaded throughout everything we do. Our parents entrust us with the care of their children and by working together we can monitor the wellbeing of all.

Bentley West Primary aims to protect all its pupils by enabling staff to be vigilant for vulnerable students by empowering them through regular, ongoing training. Our pupils take part in regular assemblies and workshops which enable them to stay safe online, in school and at home.

Technology plays an important part in the way we learn (and teach) at Bentley West, the use of technology is widespread throughout the school from Early years right up to Year 6.

Our aim is to enable the children access to technology in a way which can enhance and engage them in learning - however we must also be constantly reminded of the dangers and pitfalls of certain technologies, especially when taken online.

Technology is constantly and rapidly evolving so we must keep on top of the trend to keep our pupils safe, we will post articles and updates in newsletters and on this website as they become available.
