The welfare and safety of children who attend our school is our paramount concern. We promote the health, well-being and safety of the pupils in all we do.
Our children have the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, race, culture or disability. They have a right to be safe in our school.
As stipulated by the Children Act (1989), the Education Act (2002) and the Protection of Children Act (2001), the staff at Bader Primary School have a duty to report any concerns that they may have that any child may be at risk from significant harm or may be suffering significant harm, particularly as a consequence of possible abuse.
All adults working with or on behalf of children have a responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

- Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs S Jatwa (Deputy Head Teacher)
- Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs A Douthwaite (Assistant Head Teacher – SENDCo)
- Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead: Miss M Weir
