Safeguarding children - the action we take to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm - is everyone's responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play. 
(Working Together to Safeguard Children, HM Government, 2015)


Here at Burlington Infant and Nursery School the safeguarding of children is of paramount importance. We regularly review our safeguarding procedures and ensure all staff and parent volunteers receive annual training. All staff and volunteers are DBS checked.

Operation Encompass 

Operation Encompass is an initiative that our borough has adopted, along with many other boroughs across the country, to help keep children safe.  If there has been an incident at home where the police have been called and a child / children are present, if appropriate, the school (specifically the Safeguarding Officers) will be notified before the next school day so that we can support the children accordingly.

Please click below to see a letter from the Metropolitan Police outlining this initiative.
