Child Protection

 Eternal Light Secondary School fully recognises its responsibilities for child protection.

“Because of their day to day contact with individual children during the school terms, teachers and other school staff are particularly well placed to observe the outward signs of abuse, changes in behaviour or failure to develop.”
