Safeguarding

INFORMATION FOR OUR STUDENTS

We offer a support and guidance service whereby you can speak to a member of our team in confidence about any issues that may be concerning you.
You will be offered total confidentiality, providing you do not disclose something to us which would put you or others at risk. If something of this nature is disclosed, we have a duty to inform your parents/carers, if appropriate, and also any other relevant agencies that need to know and can help you.
If we are working with you, we strongly encourage you to share your concerns with your parents or carers. However, if you are not comfortable with this, we will respect your decision, provided what you tell us does not put you or others at risk.

The Safeguarding Team is here to support you.

All pupils who spoke with inspectors said that they feel safe in school. They believe that bullying is rare and almost all have confidence in the school’s adults to deal with any that occurs. They have a good understanding of how to keep themselves safe from potential dangers, such those that can arise when using the internet.

Who We Are – Safeguarding Team

The staff and governors of the academy recognise their responsibility to make sure that appropriate arrangements are in place to safeguard and promote the welfare of its students: Section 157 of the Education Act 2002. The academy is committed to supporting and training all staff in matters of child protection awareness. For more information on what schools and colleges must have regard to when carrying out their duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, you may wish to explore the links below to two documents from the Department for Education (DfE).


We offer a support and guidance service whereby your child can speak to a member of the Safeguarding Team in confidence about any issues that may be concerning them. We offer our students total confidentiality, providing they do not disclose something to us which would put them or others at risk. If something of this nature is disclosed, we inform you, if appropriate, and also any relevant agencies. This is explained to all our students before they speak to a member of the Safeguarding Team. In most circumstances, we strongly encourage students to make their parents and carers aware of any concerns.

The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.
The leadership of this area is meticulous.
