Safeguarding and Child Protection

At The Elton High School, we take safeguarding very seriously. All adults who regularly work on our site are required to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check to prevent unsuitable people from working with students. All visitors are closely supervised when on site.

Our staff are trained to be vigilant for all kinds of safeguarding concerns, including bullying, online safety, emotional or other abuse or extremist behaviour. We have clear procedures in place where any potential safeguarding concerns are identified and we share information with other public bodies – within agreed protocols

Mrs Johnson is the Designated Senior Person for safeguarding and child protection. We also have a designated lead governor for child protection on the Governing Body. Furthermore our Student Support Team also play a vital role in assisting with any safeguarding or child protection issues.
