The Academy is committed to the vital contribution all Governors and staff can make to safeguarding children. We will strive to make sure that every student in the Academy feels secure, well cared for, and able to reach their full potential.
We will ensure all our own staff, other professionals, parents/carers and students work together to know the rules about keeping children safe. They will understand the importance of following procedures and listening to each other, especially when there are concerns about safety.
The Academy has a Safeguarding Working Party Group which meets to discuss Safeguarding within the Academy, helping develop current policy and practices, and ensuring that the voice of both students and staff helps shape the discussion.
The Academy will work hard to reduce all the kinds of harm that children can suffer, including abuse, bullying, discrimination and avoidable injuries. If you have any concerns at all about the safety or welfare of a child please do not hesitate to contact us.

Keeping Children Safe Online
We use the PSHE and assembly programme to deliver comprehensive guidance and advice to our students about how to keep themselves safe on line.
In addition, we will be inviting in external expert guest speakers to offer workshops and presentations to further support students in understanding how to protect themselves.
We also are extending this training and guidance to our parents, offering training and guidance on information evenings, written communications, Parent Forum Meetings, and through our Academy Website.
