Safeguarding at St Elizabeth’s
At St Elizabeth’s we have the collective responsibility for keeping children safe and ensuring they are protected and safeguarded.
The Designated Safeguard Lead is Mrs Amanda Clemens.
The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Ros Heath.
We conduct an audit of our safeguarding provision and as a result produce a Safeguarding action plan. This year we are inviting the NSPCC/Childline in to do two assemblies and work with children in Y5 and Y6 to help keep them safe and give information about who and how to contact services.
Childline number: 0800 1111.
