Bacup Nursery School is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children and young people.

Please see our Child Protection Policy in the 'Policies' section of this website.

We use the Early Help Offer to our families which is a way of providing help for children, young people and families as soon as difficulties start to emerge or where it is likely that issues will impact negatively on children's outcomes. At Bacup Nursery School, we follow the Lancashire County Council guidance. 

  • Rigorous procedures and policies are in place in the Nursery School to keep all children safe.
  • All staff, governors and volunteers have enhanced DBS checks every three years.
  • Staff receive training throughout the year: face to face training, online training and the seven minute briefings
  • Members of the Governing Board  undertake training to support them in their role.
  • Staff teach children on a regular basis about how to keep safe, both in general and online.
  • Each year, the children take part in Internet Safety day.


The Designated Senior Lead for Safeguarding and Child Protection is  Mrs Cooper, Headteacher.

Mrs Cooper undertakes specialist training as the Designated Senior Lead.

Mrs Cooper also retrieves regular reports regarding searches or use of the internet in nursery school to ensure effective filtering and monitoring. Filtering blocks access to harmful sites and content. Monitoring identifies when a user accesses or searches for certain types of harmful content on school and colleges devices. The school is then alerted to any concerning content in which the school can intervene and respond. 

Children are supervised when using the internet.


The Designated Governor responsible for Safeguarding and Child Protection is Mrs Duffy.
