Safeguarding children statement

Chessbrook Education Support Centre is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors and promoting a climate where children and adults feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others.


All staff and volunteers are subject to the relevant safeguarding checks; this includes an advanced DBS clearance. A rigorous checking of qualifications and references will also be undertaken by Chessbrook before offering anyone employment. Appropriate general training on Child Protection issues will be provided on induction and at regular intervals to all members of staff and volunteers. Specialist training will be attended by the designated staff, in accordance with statutory requirements.

If you have any concerns for a child or young person then you can speak to one of the following members of the Safeguarding Team.
