Child Protection & Safeguarding

At Boddam School, we follow Aberdeenshire’s child protection guidelines, which have been devised based on national guidance and expectation.


Our designated child protection officer is Mrs Boyle (Head Teacher) but everyone has a responsibility for child protection so if you have any concerns, these can be reported to any available member of staff. All staff have been trained in child protection procedures.
