Safeguarding

ELATT is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and adults with care and support needs, and in accordance with our Safeguarding Policy, we expect all staff, volunteers, trustees and visitors to share this commitment.

The safety of all children and adults with care and support needs is our paramount concern. In cases where ELATT has reason to be concerned that a student may be subject to ill-treatment of any kind, neglect or other forms of abuse, staff must follow the ELATT's Safeguarding Policies for adults and children, which is in line with the DfE Keeping Children Safe In Education, and inform Children’s Social Care Services of their concerns.
