Elmgrove Primary School and Nursery Unit staff have a duty of care to all children to ensure all pupils are safe and cared for. Along with the Governors, staff have a legal and moral obligation to ensure children are safe and protected when they are in school and to report any concerns about abuse or neglect.
Should any concerns be made or a disclosure takes place, staff report it to the Designated Teachers or Principal, they then decide on a course of action and if necessary make a referral to Social Services.
We have a comprehensive child protection policy to ensure we have the required procedures in place and a Safeguarding Team which compromises of a Designated Teacher for Child Protection and eight additional Deputy Designated Teachers for Child Protection.
A copy of our child protection policy is available on the school website within the Policies section.
All employees undergo rigorous police checks through Access NI to be vetted before taking up
duty in the school. We have a safeguarding and visitor access system with entrances to the building secured during the school day to ensure pupil safety. All visitors to the school are required to enter via the main entrance and report to the office on arrival.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
