Keeping Children Safe
Your child’s safety is of paramount importance to our academy and we have clear and consistent procedures in place to ensure that your child is safe. We meet all of the statutory requirements and regularly monitor safeguarding provision.
We believe that safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone. Michaela Webb (Executive Principal) is designated to lead on all safeguarding matters however she is supported by a team who meet regularly and deputise in her absence from the academy.
We have a safeguarding team who meet regularly to monitor the impact of what we have in place; also ensuring we adhere to all legislation. We co-opt other members of staff onto the team when discussing items such as e-safety, children with Special Educational Needs and pastoral care. The safeguarding lead for the Board of Trustees attends some meetings as an observer but does not have access to individual child and family information.
All staff undertake annual training in the field of Safeguarding and access further, additional training throughout the year.
We follow, and adhere to, national and local guidelines to ensure that we provide best practice in this critical area of our responsibilities.
