On this page you will find updates, links and information regarding aspects of safeguarding within the classroom, academy and beyond.
At Estcourt Primary Academy, the welfare of all our pupils is of great importance to us and we hope that parents are confident about their children’s health and safety whilst in our Academy. We will always try to share any concerns with parents. However, there are times when we are legally obliged to share our concerns with other agencies, without first speaking to parents, or without the consent of parents. The safety and protection of our pupils is our most important concern and we wish to reassure you that any sharing of information is done with the children’s best interest at heart. If you have any concerns about the welfare or safety of any child in our Academy, the Safeguarding Leader and Emotional Well Being Leader is Mrs Finn, in addition, the Child Protection Officer is Mrs Capon. In their absence, you should contact Mrs Welbourne or Miss Oldroyd. They can be contacted through the Academy office, or on the playground at the beginning and end of the day, along with members of the leadership team.
The Academy has a duty to inform parents that there is a prohibition reporting or publishing details (including on social media) that could identify anyone who is subject to allegation.
You can read our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy on our Statutory Information page here.

As a parent you may be worried about how extremism and radicalisation might affect your child. We have put together this leaflet to help you understand more about extremism and radicalisation, and how you can deal with these issues.
