Safeguarding and Child Protection

Keeping children safe at Great Barton CE Primary Academy is everyone's responsibility. All staff and governors are committed to creating the safest possible environment in which children can learn and achieve. We will listen to the children in our care and take appropriate action when we need to. We will work with other agencies and seek to establish effective working relationships with parents and carers. We will seek to equip our children with essential life skills and help them make good choices about their own safety.

Our safeguarding team are.
