Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children.

Supporting and protecting the welfare of vulnerable students

It is very important that our students feel safe in school and, as such, safeguarding is a priority area for us. We follow the statutory guidance and local advice including:

Keeping Children Safe in Education

Working together to Safeguard Children

And have our own child protection policy which can be found on Our Policies page here.

It is essential that everybody working in a school or college understands their safeguarding responsibilities. These are detailed in the Keeping Children Safe in Education document.

All staff trained in line with statutory requirements which include Child Protection, Prevent, and Female Genital Mutilation.

In addition further guidance is disseminated to all staff by:

  • Staff training on changes to KCSIE every September
  • Regular safeguarding briefings
  • Information sharing in weekly briefings of students at risk of harm
  • Information sharing meetings with pastoral at regular meetings on a needs to know basis
  • Safer recruitment

All interviews are carried out in line with our Safer Recruitment Policy which can be found on Our Policies page here.
