First and foremost, we provide a safe and caring environment where every individual learner can flourish. Bullying and any form of emotional or physical abuse are not tolerated. We also educate our learners about how to stay safe in the digital world.
As an Academy, we are committed to safeguarding and meeting the needs of all young people. No child should suffer harm, either at home or at school. Everyone who works in our Academy has a responsibility to make sure that all our young people are safe.
If you have any concerns about the welfare of any learner, please ask to speak to Miss Griffiths (Designated Child Protection Officer).
If you have any worries about wellbeing, behaviour or bullying, contact the school immediately to talk to your child's Learning Manager.
