Who has a duty to safeguard children?


We have a robust system for recording incidents called My Concerns.  It enables any issues raised to be recorded, at any time, by any member of staff.  It provides the Governors with comprehensive reports, enabling challenge, which ensures staff are held to account.

We have a rigorous recruitment process that gathers evidence about staff suitability to work with children. All references are checked, and all staff, students, governors and volunteers must undergo an enhanced police check. All staff and volunteers also undertake regular Safeguarding training.

We have designated Safeguarding team in place as follows:

Nina Sneddon – DSL
