Pastoral Care and Safeguarding
We pride ourselves in providing excellent pastoral care for our pupils. Children thrive best when they feel happy, safe and secure - regardless of their age - and we work with parents to teach them good manners and respect for each other.
We deliver very personal care to our pupils. Everyone is recognised and known, teachers work together to ensure that pupils are correctly supported, and we encourage a real sense of community that many families feel extends well beyond our gates.
Brigstock Latham’s Primary School is dedicated to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our pupils, regardless of age, ability, race, culture, religion, sexuality or class. Safeguarding is integrated into the School ethos.
