Safeguarding Overview

Safeguarding at Ely St John's

We are committed to the vital contribution that all governors, teaching and non-teaching staff make to safeguarding and the protection and welfare of our children.

We aim to ensure that all child protection and welfare concerns and referrals are handled sensitively, professionally and in ways that support the specific needs of the individual child.

We aim to foster an atmosphere of trust, respect and security by providing a caring, safe and stimulating environment which promotes the social, physical and moral development of all our children.
