The Charter School

East Dulwich


The Charter Schools Educational Trust (the ‘Trust’) is committed across all its schools, including The Charter School East Dulwich to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors and to promoting a culture in which everyone feels confident about sharing any and all concerns they may have about their own safety and well-being or the safety and well-being of others.  

Our aim is to safeguard and promote the welfare of children by:  protecting them from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking robust action to enable all children to have the best outcomes possible.
