Wellbeing & Safeguarding
Elms Bank is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors. We promote a climate where children and adults feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others. The welfare and safety of our students is paramount and we endeavour to promote the health, well-being and safety of all our students.
Every student has the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, race, culture or disability. Elms Bank will provide support to those children who have been abused or are at risk of abuse.
All adults in the school have a duty to promote the welfare and safety of our students in school and in their wider communities. We teach our learners to keep themselves safe, both within the school grounds and in the wider world. We work closely with parents and our safeguarding partners in Social Care, Health and Police to ensure that there is clarity and understanding of our procedures in relation to child protection.
Rebecca Carney is the Designated Safeguarding Lead, she is supported by a team of Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads.
We teach our learners to keep themselves safe, both within the school grounds and in the wider world. We work closely with parents and multi-agency support team (MAST) to ensure that there is clarity and understanding of our procedures in relation to child protection.
Wellbeing is central to the role of the form teacher and class-based staff, all our pupils have a dedicated class team to support them. Every pupil has access to a bespoke wellbeing curriculum, through this, pupils are given opportunities to develop awareness of their own wellbeing and how they can improve their own mental health.
At Elms Bank we promote wellbeing through the 5 steps to excellence.
Pupils can also access additional or specialist support through the Pastoral Team, wellbeing groups, school nursing team, intervention sessions and a specialist counsellor.
