At BCCS we are committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors and promoting a climate where children and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others. We follow the Bristol Child Protection Procedures and the Local Safeguarding Children's Board local guidance and have systems in place to share concerns. Part of our legal duty to safeguard our children may also include us needing to consult specifically with and take advice from the Police or Children's Social Care, should the need arise. Please find our CST Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy under the Policies section on the website. The Safeguarding of our students is of paramount importance to us and we have a dedicated Safeguarding Team you can contact about any concerns:
