Everyone at Ernest Bevin College who comes into contact with children, their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. Safeguarding at Ernest Bevin College is child centred: this means considering at all times what is in the best interest of the child. We are committed to promoting the welfare of the children and expect all staff, governors, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment.
