Safeguarding

What is Safeguarding?

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as:

  •  protecting children from maltreatment
  • preventing impairment of children's and learner's health or development
  • ensuring children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes

At Elton Primary School, we are committed to creating and maintaining a safe learning environment for children and young people, identifying where there are child welfare concerns and taking action to address them, in partnership with families and other agencies.

Our headteacher, Victoria Carr meets with the senior leadership team twice per term to discuss issues with safeguarding.

We educate our pupils to be safe and this is done through school assemblies, SEAL, inviting in external agencies such as NSPCC/ Childline to do workshops as well as providing children with safety literature.

We work inline with the policies of Cheshire West Local Safeguarding board and further detail can be found by clicking on the following link: http://cheshirewestlscb.org.uk/ or you can view our school safeguarding policy at the bottom of this page or on the policies section of the website.

How to report a concern?

If you have a concern regarding a child at Elton Primary School, in the first instance please report your concern to Mrs Victoria Carr, Headteacher (designated Safeguarding lead) or Mr Kevin Manning, Deputy Safeguarding Officer.

If you think a child is in immediate danger, you should contact the police on 999 or the Childrens Contact and Referral Team for Cheshire West on 01606 275099.

NSPCC Underwear Rule

The next phase of the NSPCC's successful Underwear Rule campaign was launched in December. It encourages parents of 5 to 11-year-olds to talk to their children about keeping safe from sexual abuse. New figures reveal that sex crimes against under-11s have increased by 20% - from 4,772 in 2011-12 to 5,547 in 2012-13.
