Eastbury Community School


At Eastbury we want all of our students to be safe. All of the staff will receive child protection and safeguarding training, and we have a dedicated child protection team. Our child protection team has a duty of care to the young person. There are different types of abuse which can place a child at risk:

  • Physical abuse such as punching, hitting or burning
  • Sexual abuse such as forcing a child to take part in any sexual activity
  • Emotional harm such as making a child feel unloved or useless or constantly putting them down
  • Neglect means not providing a child with enough for their basic needs e.g. enough food, clothes, medical care.

If at any time you have concerns whether for yourself and your child or for any other young person please contact the child protection team, or you can contact Barking & Dagenham Children’s services on 020 8227 3811.

Mental Health and Well-Being

At Eastbury Community School the mental and physical well-being of our pupils is paramount.

We believe that children are unable to learn unless they are coping well mentally. The staff believe that every child is unique and we teach all children holistically with the well-being of each pupil is at the core of everything that we do. Children are taught discrete lessons that focus on the techniques and strategies that are used to look after our mental health and wellbeing. All children develop the understanding of how to articulate their emotions and deal with uncomfortable feelings when they arise.

We ensure that all pupils are taught that physical and mental well-being work simultaneously and that we cannot look after either in isolation. Therefore, pupils engage in daily exercise through the daily mile and active lunchtimes; this helps to keep our pupils fit and healthy. Another area that we are particularly proud of is our healthy school lunches and growing our own fruit and vegetables at school. Daily practise of mindful activities such as: yoga, meditation, cooking and breathing techniques are embedded throughout the school ensuring that every child understands the importance of being present.

The teaching staff also show a commitment to their own mental health and well-being by engaging in these activities with the pupils, as well as during their spare time. We are committed to providing a happy and safe school that priorities the well-being of all children.

Radicalisation & Extremism 

Part of safeguarding is to ensure that our students do not get drawn into radicalisation/extremist groups. We know that this can also be a concern for parents.

On our website we have a direct link to advice for parents/carers to help protect your child from possible radicalisation. If you have any concerns for your child or any young person you can contact the child protection team or if you prefer the local police on 101, or independent charity Crimestoppers 0800 555 111.

Radicalisation  & Extremism Further Information

The information covers different age groups from 5-14+, and there is a parent/carer area. As well as advice and information there is a red report abuse button which you can use, if you fell worried or uncomfortable about any one on line.


This occurs when a young person receives something (for example food, accommodation, drugs, alcohol, gifts, money or affection), as a reward for taking part in sexual activities. Exploitation occurs when there is a power imbalance and the person feels intimidated, and pressurised to have sex. It can include sexual bullying, cyberbullying and grooming. Please contact our CP team if you have any concerns.

Designated Teacher

The designated teacher has a leadership role in promoting the educational achievement of every looked after child on the school’s roll. The role should make a positive difference by promoting a whole school culture where the personalised learning needs of every looked after child matters and their personal, emotional and academic needs are prioritized.
