Every member of our Academy is committed to safeguarding the health, safety and well-being of all our staff and students. This is embedded through our Christian vision of ensuring everyone is able to lead the best life possible, now and in the future. It’s underpinned by the words of Jesus, in John 10:10, “I have come that you may have life in all its fullness”.
Our priority is to provide students with an environment in which they can live life in all its fullness; a welcoming and safe community, rooted in mutual respect. When the Academy and wider community as a whole work closely together, children thrive. Child Protection is a crucial part of school life. All staff receive regular training to give them the wisdom necessary to keep children safe. Every member of the school community has a responsibility to keep each other safe and we aim to instil in every member of the community the courage to come forward when support is needed.
All Academy staff have a statutory responsibility to share any concerns they have about a child. We work very closely with parents and carers, especially when a concern is raised, and we have a number of opportunities we can provide within the Academy to support our students when a concern is raised. On occasions we must refer to external agencies; however we will always involve the parents and carers where this is possible, we always look to adhere to the latest guidance and legislation and when making decisions we always put the best interests of the child first.
Parents are the most important people when it comes to keeping their children safe.
You can help by:
- Talking to your child about concerns in a supportive way
- Talking to us if you or your child need help or support
- Letting us know if your child has a medical condition
- Letting us know if there is a change in your circumstances; living arrangements, contact numbers, change of name, change of parental responsibility, change in emergency contacts, change in social worker, court orders etc.
- Reading the our policies and any communications we send out
