Safeguarding and child protection

At Eden, we take safeguarding very seriously and all our staff understand that “safeguarding is everyone’s business and everyone’s responsibility”. The school works closely with the local Safeguarding Children’s Board and related safeguarding teams and takes full part in multi-agency training organised by them.

All adults who regularly work on our site are required to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check to prevent unsuitable people from working with students. All visitors are closely supervised when on site.

Our staff are trained to be vigilant for all kinds of safeguarding concerns, including bullying, online safety, emotional or other abuse or extremist behaviour. We have clear procedures in place where any potential safeguarding concerns are identified and appropriate action taken. Where a student is deemed to be at significant risk and we need to involve other agencies, we share information with other public bodies such as Children’s Social Care. Where information is shared, we work within the agreed local information sharing protocols to make sure that information is shared in line with local and national rules.

Where safeguarding concerns are raised that relate to any adults in school, we work closely with the Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) to make sure we follow the correct procedures, and ensure all concerns are investigated and followed up appropriately.

Our students are taught about how to keep themselves safe and about what to do if they have any concerns. We also teach them and display information about local and national charities (e.g. NSPCC) that they can contact for confidential advice

Sajid Khaliq is our Designated Senior Person for safeguarding. Aisha Esakji is lead governor for child protection.
