Safeguarding and Child Protection

Eton Dorney Independent Therapeutic School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this committment.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy which can be viewed here and in the Policies section of our website. This policy is in line with the Keeping Children Safe in Education 2019 document.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.
We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism. 

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Ludivine Parmentier (Headteacher) We also have a Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead, Charlotte Hill (Welfare and pastoral lead). 
The nominated child protection and safeguarding governor for our school is: Robin Ward, Chair of Governors

Due to the Covid-19 there is an updated Safeguarding Policy which is fully operational during these unprecedented times: add link to where this has been placed o the website.

Eton Dorney Independent Therapeutic School has been successful in gaining the Safeguarding Alliance Initiative Award.
