At Brune Park we understand that it is our collective and moral accountability to provide the best quality learning for all – so everyone in the school community makes progress, achieves to their best, and is happy and well.
This School therefore recognises its prime responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all its learners.
Read our Safeguarding Policy.
If you have a safeguarding concern or something you would like to discuss please contact a member of the safeguarding team. You can do this by speaking to a member of reception staff.
If your child has an issue or a concern please encourage them to speak to their year team (HOY or DHOY) or any member of the Safeguarding Team.
