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

We are dedicated to looking after all our children the best we possibly can. Safeguarding covers children’s physical, social and emotional well-being.


To do this effectively we have one teacher who co-ordinates this work, this person is known as the Designated Teacher for Safeguarding or Designated Safeguarding Lead. Our DSL is Mrs Roxanne Simpson


Any concerns about children’s welfare or wellbeing should be discussed with Roxanne as soon as possible.


If you have a safeguarding query you can also email


The school has a ELAN Safeguarding Policy 2020-2021 that is in line with recommendations from NSSCB and updates from Keeping Children Safe in Education 2020. The policy is reviewed annually by governors and is a working document that reflects our practice. Parents/carers can request a paper copy from the office.


During COVID19 Lockdown we have created additional visitor information to ensure we remain COVID safe and secure.


In addition to our existing safeguarding policy, we have also published additional information about safeguarding during the Coronavirus outbreak.
