We take safeguarding extremely seriously and our staff will do everything they can to keep students safe and protect them from harm. We acknowledge that safeguarding is the most important part of everyone’s job and therefore everyone’s responsibility. All of our staff are trained to be vigilant and aware of the signs of safety and indicators of abuse. The viewpoints and voice of students is of paramount importance to our School and we will always listen to students’ wishes, thoughts and feelings, as well as identifying and supporting their needs. We work alongside students to develop trusting, consistent and professional relationships. We advocate early help processes and, where possible, we identify any difficulties or concerns early in order to act preventatively. We always provide support and advice for families and parents/carers, whilst acting in the best interests of the student at all times. Safeguarding also includes ensuring we follow safe working practices and provide a secure learning environment for our students, visitors and staff.
