The Designated Safeguarding Lead at Ethelbert Road Primary School is Mrs Michele Kirkbride (Headteacher) and the Deputy Safeguarding Leads are Mr Kelvin Jones (Deputy Headteacher/SENCo) and Mrs Claire Cornall (Mental Health and Wellbeing Manager). Our Safeguarding Governor is Mrs Karen Flatteau.
Ethelbert Road Primary School is a community and all those directly connected (staff, governors, pupils, parents and families) have an essential role to play in making it safe and secure. Ethelbert Road recognises our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children with their best interests at the centre of our work.
We recognise the importance of providing an ethos and environment within school that will help children to feel safe, secure and respected; encourage them to talk openly; and enable them to feel confident that they will be listened to. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.
