Our Overarching Principles for Safeguarding and Child Protection
We recognise that academies and academy personnel are in a unique position in their care of children. The responsibility for all staff to safeguard pupils and promote their welfare, as stated in Section 175 of the Education Act (2002), is one that is central to our ethos, our policies and our actions.
All children are deserving of the highest levels of care and safeguarding, regardless of their individual characteristics or circumstances, and we are committed to ensure effective levels of safeguarding and care are afforded to all of our pupils.
It is essential that all actions are taken first and foremost in the best interest of our pupils.
