Safeguarding & Child Protection
Nothing is more important to us than the safety and welfare of our pupils. We take rigorous steps to ensure that children stay safe and do not come to any harm. We work closely with parents / carers and a range of professional external agencies in order to secure this.
Elland Church of England prides itself on being a caring community and has a highly experienced, competent and effective pastoral team. The team consists of Mr Parker, Mrs Hoyle and Mrs Walker. They have a number of responsibilities and roles to play throughout school including parent liaising, family support, after school clubs and family learning to name a few. Alongside Mrs Holdsworth and Miss Hartley, each of the pastoral team is also a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL). Click Safeguarding and Child Protection Procedure to see our team of DSLs. Our school is proud of the way problems are reduced through the use of our SOS room (Speak Out Safely) managed by the pastoral team at lunchtimes.
All of the pastoral team are available for parents and families in the playground before school starts. Having the team easily available for parents allows teaching staff to be able to start the school day promptly. These members of staff wear hi-vis jackets so can be easily spotted.
