All staff adhere to the ELAN Safeguarding Policy which is developed in line with recommendations from North Somerset Safeguarding Children Partnership (NSSCP) and Keeping Children Safe in Education 2021 (KCSIE21). The policy is reviewed annually by Extend Learning Academies Network (ELAN) and governors and is a working document that reflects our practice.
Keeping Children Safe in Education 2021 is the statutory guidance from the Department for Education (republished in September 2021). It is imperative that all staff (including volunteers) read Part 1 Appendix A of this guidance and sign that they have done so (Mendip Green maintains a register to determine this). Schools must have regard to the guidance when carrying out their duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. The document contains information on what schools should do and sets out the legal duties with which schools must comply.
