We recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all students and staff. We take great pride in providing a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective advice, support and protection.

Our dedicated safeguarding team support all of our work with young people in the Academy and are available to offer guidance should you or your child have any concerns regarding safeguarding issues.

Anyone who has concerns reagarding someone who works with young people, including volunteers, casual staff, foster carers or anyone working in a self-employed capacity, should report these concerns to the Local Designated Officer (LADO).
