Safeguarding processes are dictated by substantial national documentation and subject to significant scrutiny.

For our Academy, that means ensuring we have the right culture – where safeguarding is at the heart of what we do.

This requires:

  • Awareness of national and local issues
  • Appropriate policies and practice
  • Effective training at all levels
  • Timely responses including, where necessary, other agencies
  • High quality evidence and records
  • Thorough quality assurance

Safeguarding is the overarching title for these matters. The list of relevant topics includes:
