This strategy has been developed in accordance with the principles established by the Children Acts 1989 and 2004; the Education Act 2002, and in line with government publications: ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ 2015, Revised Safeguarding Statutory Guidance 2 ‘Framework for the Assessment of Children in Need and their Families’ 2000, ‘What to do if You are Worried a Child is Being Abused’ 2015.
The guidance also reflects, both ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ Sept 2016, and Local Safeguarding Children Board Child Protection Procedures
The School takes seriously its responsibility under section 175 of the Education Act 2002 to safeguard and promote the welfare of children; and to ensure its academies work together with other agencies to ensure adequate arrangements are fully in place to identify, assess, and support those children who are suffering harm.
This strategy applies to all members of staff, governors and trustees in all academies across the trust.
