Safeguarding Statement

Elm Grove Primary School is commited 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 'Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy' which can be viewed in the 'Policies' section of our website.


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.


Our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL) are:

  • Mrs L Udell (Head Teacher)
  • Mrs K Toon (Deputy Head Teacher)
  • Mrs L Green (Inclusion Co-ordinator)

For any child protection or safeguarding issues please email dsl@elmgrove.org.uk

Operation Encompass

From May 2018 Elm Grove Primary School will be part of Operation Encompass which is run jointly with Sussex Police.  

Operation Encompass has been designed to provide early reporting to schools / colleges of any domestic abuse incidents that occur in which a child was present, ordinarily resides at the incident location or with an involved party.
