Safeguarding Team

Elvington CE Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its pupils. We believe all staff and visitors have an important and unique role to play in child protection. We believe:

  • Schools can contribute to the prevention of abuse.
  • All children have the right to be protected from harm.
  • Children need support which matches their individual needs, including those who may have experienced abuse.
  • Children need to be safe and feel safe in school.Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy

Andrew Buttery is the designated safeguarding lead, with Nicki Granger as deputy designated safeguarding lead. Bruce Cole is the designated safeguarding governor, and Katy McCaffrey is the Chair of the Health and Safety Committee.

We work under the guidance of the Department for Education. Please see ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education – Statutory Guidance for Schools and Colleges Part One‘ and the school’s Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy, available on our Policies & Documents page, for more information. Parents and carers may also request a paper copy from the office.
