Reporting a Safeguarding Concern
Our Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people. We expect all pupils, staff, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment.
The academy ensures that pupils learn in a safe, caring and enriching environment. Children are taught how to keep themselves safe, to develop positive and healthy relationships and how to avoid situations where they might be at risk including being exploited.
