Safeguarding and child protection
The Academy is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Parents can feel confident that careful procedures are in place to ensure that all staff and volunteers are suitable to work with children within the Academy. Consistent and effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff. The Academy encourages parents and children to talk freely about any concerns or worries which may affect their wellbeing. It is important to us that parents and students see the Academy as a safe place.
All concerns are referred to the members of staff who are our trained designated Safeguarding Officers working as the school's Safeguarding Team.
