Safeguarding Statement

At Tower Hamlets  Primary schools,  there is nothing more important to us than the physical and emotional health and well-being of our pupils.  As such we have created and worked relentlessly to maintain a climate in which staff, pupils, parents and governors feel able to voice concerns comfortably; knowing that effective action will be taken.  We are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our pupils.  We engender the principle that safeguarding is 'everyone's responsibility'.  All staff and volunteers should raise any concerns they have about poor or unsafe practice and potential failures in the school safeguarding regime.

Bangabandhu is a Tower Hamlets Community Primary School for Children aged Three to Eleven

As an inclusive school, our intake is diverse, reflecting the local community.

There are two classes in each year group from Reception to Year Six; with a Nursery, providing 15 hour places and 30 hour working parent places, when requested and eligible. We have a local authority resourced special educational needs provision for 15 children with Complex Needs.

Bangabandhu opened in January 1989, moving into permanent premises in November 1991. Our governors at the time chose the school name, which means ‘Friend of Bengal’. It is the honorary title given to Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, who helped found Bangladesh in 1971.

We are a very well-resourced school with extensive playground facilities, a computer suite which accommodates classes of 30, a library, two halls and many group rooms which facilitates small group working.

We have been recognised as a Gold Rights Respecting School. 

We are part of an established and productive soft federation with another local Bethnal Green school, Globe Primary School.
