Safeguarding the wellbeing of our children is paramount.

We have very clear procedures and systems in place to identify and act if we suspect a child is in danger.

We have a number of trained professionals in the Academy, but there are 3 named designated safeguarding leads:

Mr Simon Tarr [Assistant Principal]

Ms Simone Weekes [Safeguarding and Child Protection Officer]

Ms Lucy Sacre [Director of Learning Support]

If you are concerned about the welfare of a child you can contact the police [101 for non-urgent calls, 999 where you believe a child to be in immediate danger]. Alternatively, you can call the LADO [Local Area Designated Officer] on 01603 223473. If you suspect that some form of abuse is taking place on line, you can contact CEOP [Child Exploitation Online Protection]:
