Somerset Bridge Values
Aspire to be the best we can in our behaviour, our learning and our hopes and dreams.
Brave to challenge ourselves and take risks so that we achieve the best we can.
Care for our school environment, so that we maintain a safe, sustainable and healthy community and set an example for life choices both within and outside of school.
Collaborate with all members of the community – pupils, parents, staff, governors, neighbouring schools and organisations in the local area - ensuring that all contributions are encouraged and valued.



The child’s welfare is of paramount importance. Our school will establish and maintain an ethos where students feel secure, are encouraged to talk, are listened to and are safe.  Children at our school will be able to talk freely to any member of staff if they are worried or concerned about something.


Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children. We recognise that staff at our school play a particularly important role as they are in a position to identify concerns early and provide help for children to prevent concerns from escalating. All staff are advised to maintain an attitude of ‘it could happen here’ where safeguarding is concerned. 


At all times we will work in partnership and endeavour to establish effective working relationships with parents, carers and colleagues from other agencies in line with Working Together to Safeguard Children (2023). 


As a school, we recognise that high self-esteem, confidence, supportive friends and clear lines of communication with trusted adults helps all children, and especially those at risk of, or suffering from, abuse. Looked After Children, those with SEN and/or disabilities and other vulnerable young people require additional safeguarding and support to overcome the additional barriers that exist to recognise signs of abuse.
