Our school is dedicated to looking after all our children the best we possibly can. We fully recognise our responsibility under section 175 of the Education Act 2002 to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and to work together with other agencies to ensure adequate arrangements within our school to identify, assess, and support those children who are suffering harm. 

 

Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.

Safeguarding means:

  • protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
  • preventing harm to children's health or development
  • ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes

This runs alongside our work on health and safety and e-safety

 

Safeguarding children and child protection guidance and legislation applies to all children up to the age of 18.

As part of ELAN we ensure that all staff adhere to the Safeguarding Policy 2020-21 which is developed in line with recommendations from NSSCB. The policy is reviewed annually by ELAN and governors and is a working document that reflects our practice.

 

  1. Establishing a safe environment in which children can learn and develop.
  2. Ensuring we practice safe recruitment in checking the suitability of staff and volunteers to work with children.
  3. Raising awareness of safeguarding issues and equipping children with the skills needed to keep them safe.
  4. Developing and then implementing procedures for identifying and reporting cases, or suspected cases, of abuse, including recording.
  5. Procedures and safe storage of documents.
  6. Supporting pupils who have been abused in accordance with his/her agreed child protection plan.

 

Parents/carers can request a paper copy from the office.
