The Elmgreen School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Safeguarding legislation and government guidance says that safeguarding means:
• Protecting children from maltreatment
• Preventing impairment of children’s health or development
• Ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
• Taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcome
Safeguarding includes child protection, health care plans, health and safety, site security, safety on school trips, anti-bullying work and so much more.
The school adheres to the following three DFE safeguarding documents:
• Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018
• Keeping Children Safe in Education 2020
• The Prevent Duty 2015
The Elmgreen School encourages an open and honest approach. Bullying or harassment of any kind is not tolerated at The Elmgreen School.
