At Elkelsey Primary and Nursery School, we take our responsibility for Safeguarding very seriously. All staff are trained in how to recognise concerns and are regularly updated on changes to documentation, policy and procedures. Our staff, who share this commitment to everyone's safety, are required to undergo an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check before they are able to work with us at EPNS.
Our DSLs network regularly with officers from Nottinghamshire County County, including the Safeguarding Children in Education Officer, colleagues in other schools and other agencies and, when necessary, with Social Care.
Elkesley primary and Nursery school adheres to the latest guidance contained within Keeping Children Safe in Education and all staff are required to complete an assessment of their understanding of the document and any changes to it as part of our Safeguarding Training.
