‘Please keep me safe.’

This simple but profoundly important hope is the very minimum upon which every child and young person should be able to depend.

Lord Laming 2009

 At Blackburn Primary School we ensure every child who is a registered pupil at our school is safe and protected from harm and we expect everyone who works in our school to share this commitment.  This means we will always work to take all welfare concerns seriously and always act in the best interests of the child.
