Safeguarding and Child Protection

We at Bures CEVC Primary School embrace the moral and statutory responsibility placed on all staff to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children. We aim to provide a safe and welcoming environment, underpinned by a culture of openness where both children and adults feel secure, are able to raise concerns and believe they are being listened to, and that appropriate action will be taken to keep them safe.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Ms Ruth Slater

Our Alternate Deputy Safeguarding Lead (ADSL) is Mrs Vicky Holmes

If you have a concern or feel you need to share a safeguarding issue, both members of staff can be contacted via the School Office by telephone on 01787 227446 or by email using the address

Early Help Offer

Every family is unique with its own combination of strengths and weaknesses. Any family can get overwhelmed by what seems like endless challenge when it comes to juggling money, school and each other’s needs. And sometimes families are disrupted by a change in circumstance such as a mental or physical illness, a job loss, or an addiction. Even “joyful” events such as a wedding or a new job can bring unexpected problems.

The purpose of early help is to prevent issues and problems becoming serious and harmful to a child or young person, their family and community. When children and families need this extra support, they often need it quickly.

You can find out more about the many ways we may offer the support you need in our Early Help Offer here.
