Safeguarding at Berwick Middle School

Berwick Middle School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and wellbeing of all our pupils, staff and whole school community. This commitment is something that all staff, visitors and the children themselves are involved in and is one of the most vital aspects of our role as a school. As a result of this, we as a staff spend a great deal of time and effort to ensure we keep the pupils, their families and school staff as safe as possible.
