The school is committed to ensuring that your child is safe whilst with us. This means that not only have we made every attempt to make both sites secure but take a firm line on bullying: our implementation of policies in both areas has been inspected and praised by the Local Authority.
All staff have been trained to level 1 in Safeguarding and Child Protection and we have many with advanced training (Level 3). All staff work under the guidance of our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mrs K Tate, Assistant Head (Inclusion). Mrs Tate can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
We make stringent safeguarding checks upon the suitability of all applicants when recruiting. Within the PSHE programme, there are modules on keeping safe and we focus upon teaching students e-safety. In our latest stakeholder surveys, safety was identified as a strength of the school by both students and their parents/carers.

Learners will be able to recognise the signs of child sexual exploitation, to understand the impact of this abuse and know what to do if they suspect a child might be at risk.
