Safeguarding

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people, in line with Keeping Children Safe in Education (2015) and Working Together to Safeguard Children (2015). All staff and volunteers are required to share this commitment.

Safeguarding is achieved through sound policies, procedures and practice, good inter-agency cooperation and the recruitment and retention of competent, motivated employees who are suited to and fulfilled in the roles they undertake.

Learners are also given guidance regarding online child safety and exploitation. Read the latest information from CEOP about keeping children safe online or to report any concerns regarding online safety.

Training

Staff are trained in Level 2 Educare Child Protection in Education and are aware of their responsibility to identify and report children who are at risk.

Reporting and monitoring

Every school has a Designated Safeguarding Lead who is trained to provide support to staff, carry out their safeguarding duties and liaise closely with children’s social care teams and other services.
