Information about Ellington

Ellington Primary School is committed to the highest standards in protecting and safeguarding the children entrusted to our care.


Our school will support all children by:

  1. Promoting a caring, safe and positive environment within the school

  2. Encouraging self-esteem and self-assertiveness

  3. Effectively tackling bullying and harassment

  4. Promoting all aspects of the Equality Act 2010


We have an expectation that all staff and visitors to our school will behave in a way which ensures our children are safeguarded at all times. This expectation involves a duty for any safeguarding concerns to be reported.
