Bare Trees Primary School


At Bare Trees Primary School, we are committed to safeguarding children and young people and we expect  that everyone who works and visits our school shares this commitment. 


The school acronym demonstrates our commitment to promoting the wellbeing and safety of all individuals:   

  Brave       Aspirational     Resilience       Equal        Together       Respectful    Enthusiastic

Adults in our school take all welfare and safeguarding concerns seriously and we encourage children to talk to us about anything that worries them. 


We will always act in the best interest of the child.

School Systems

Within school we use the online safeguarding system CPOMS to log and monitor any safeguarding concerns or incidents. Many schools use the CPOMS system and information recorded there can transfer with pupils when they move to another school.
