Eton End School is committed to its responsibilities for safeguarding and child protection and recognises the key role it plays in the wider safeguarding system for children. The safety and welfare of our pupils is paramount and we work to create a safe environment and one where the culture enables them to feel valued and listened to, and where they know that their wishes and feelings are respected. We have a ‘it could happen here’ attitude and are equipped to ‘think the unthinkable’ – the children are at the heart of everything we do.

Safeguarding Team Cue Card 2023 - 2024

Eton End has policies and procedures in place to deal effectively with child protection and safeguarding issues, together with recording and monitoring processes including safer recruitment procedures and staff conduct.

All staff, volunteers and governors are trained to a level appropriate to their safeguarding responsibilities and in line with statutory guidance; this includes PREVENT and online safety.

Eton End is committed to protecting our children from extremist behaviour and, as such support the prevent branch of CONTEST (Counter Terrorism Strategy).

  • Prevent: to stop people becoming terrorists and supporting terrorism
  • Pursue: to stop terrorist attacks
  • Protect: to strengthen our protection against terrorist attack
  • Prepare: to mitigate the impact of a terrorist attack

Eton End supports CONTEST by:

Eton End is part of Operation Encompass, a unique police and education early intervention safeguarding partnership enabling support for children and young people who have experienced domestic abuse. Operation Encompass will ensure that all incidents of Domestic Abuse are shared with schools, not just those where an offence can be identified. Through Operation Encompass a trained Key Adult / Deputy Key Adult in school will be notified of a domestic abuse incident that the police attended. The Key Adult is responsible for coordinating school-based support with the child(ren) and vulnerable adult(s) in the family and will also liaise with Thames Valley Police and other external agencies as and when necessary.

Private Fostering

Private fostering is when children and young people under the age of 16 years, or under 18 if they are disabled, are cared for on a full-time basis by a person who is not their parent, who does not have parental responsibility or who is not a "close relative" for 28 days or more. Close relatives are defined as:

  • grandparents
  • brothers and sisters
  • uncles and aunts, or
  • stepparents (if married to the partner or in civil partnership).

Under the Private Fostering Arrangements (2005), the school is under a duty to inform the Children and Families Service about any private fostering arrangements they are made aware of.

Looked After Children

A child who has been in the care of their local authority for more than 24 hours is known as a looked after child. Looked after children are also often referred to as children in care, a term which many children and young people prefer.

In general terms, looked after children are:

  • living with foster parents
  • living in a residential children's home or
  • living in residential settings like schools or secure units.
