At King Ecgbert School we are committed to supporting the safety and wellbeing of our children and young people and in line with the Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2021.
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children means:
- protecting children from maltreatment
- preventing impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development
- ensuring that children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
- taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
At King Ecgbert we believe that:
- Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility
- Everyone has a role to play in identifying concerns.
- The whole community has a responsibility to provide a safe environment.
