Etchells have a strong commitment to safeguarding and the welfare of the children in our care is our highest priority. We promote a culture where staff and members of the school community are observant to ensure that signs and symptoms of abuse are picked up, thus the opportunity for those wishing to cause harm to children is drastically reduced. Our staff are trained and well adverse and committed to the safety of all children. 

At Etchells, we have four designated safeguard leads: Mrs Beddows, Mr Cope, Miss Wilson and Mrs Kind.

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children, their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding them and promoting their welfare. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child. If you have any concerns please contact a member of our safeguarding team.

Please find a poster of our Designated Safeguard leads and our safeguarding policy attached.
