At Ellesmere college the health, safety and well-being of every pupil is our top priority. We expect all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment to safeguarding our pupils.
We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. All school staff are trained in Child Protection, and pupils are made aware of the adults they can talk to if they have any concerns. Staff are trained to look out for signs of physical/emotional harm, neglect or abuse and are required to report these to the Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL).
The procedures which we follow have been laid down by the Leicester City Safeguarding Team and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this, for the safety of all. On rare occasions our concern about a child may mean that we have to consult other agencies. We will ensure that all concerns are discussed with parents/ carers.
