Safeguarding is our main priority at Eggbuckland Community College. All of our students have the right to feel safe in every aspect of their lives, and to thrive in an environment where they feel that they are being listened to. We have both a statutory obligation and a moral responsibility to make sure that we address, challenge and report any instances where it is felt that this is not happening.
All our staff are trained regularly in safeguarding and are alert to all aspects of abuse and neglect as well as self harm. Staff report any concerns confidentially to the Designated Safeguarding Lead or the Safeguarding Team, who act in a proactive manner to ensure that students receive the support, protection and justice required.
Our safeguarding practice in College is of the highest standard and is consistent with the Plymouth Safeguarding Children Board (PSCB) as well as Ofsted regulations. We work under the guidance of the Working together to Safeguard Children’s act (2015) and Keeping Children Safe in Education (2016).
If you have any further questions or concerns about Safeguarding at Eggbuckland Community College please contact the College and ask to speak to a member of the safeguarding team.
