All staff adhere to the ELAN Safeguarding Policy which is developed in line with recommendations from North Somerset Safeguarding Children Partnership (NSSCP) and KCSIE21. The policy is reviewed annually by Extend Learning Academies Network (ELAN) and governors and is a working document that reflects our practice. Parents/carers can request a paper copy from the office.
In addition to our existing safeguarding policy, we have also published additional information about safeguarding during the Coronavirus outbreak.
Keeping Children Safe in Education
Please see below the statutory guidance from the Department for Education (re-published September 2021). It is imperative that all staff (including volunteers) read Part 1 and Appendix A of this guidance and sign that they have done so (a register exists to determine this). Schools must have regard to the guidance when carrying out their duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. This document contains information on what schools should do and sets out the legal duties with which schools must comply.
