Safeguarding Audit 2023

A team from Learn-At Multi Academy Trust attended our school in May 2023 to carry out an audit on our safeguarding practices. The summary of the detailed report states:

"Safeguarding was judged to be effective.
You lead safeguarding effectively. All members of staff have read and understand the latest government documentation concerning safeguarding requirements. The checks that you have made on the suitability of staff to work with children are up to-date. Records show that staff are trained annually on Keeping Children Safe in Education and The Safeguarding Code of Conduct. Furthermore, staff have recently attended training on the Prevent duty and indicators and actions to take relating to child sexual exploitation. There is a strong safeguarding culture at the school. The files you shared with me show that record keeping is well organised. This enables you to effectively retrieve information regarding vulnerable individuals to help you make important decisions regarding their welfare. Records show that leaders take timely actions where there are any concerns about pupils’ welfare."



Every school has a duty to keep children safe from radicalisation. The national Prevent scheme operated by the police in partnership with local authorities and community organisations aims to stop individuals becoming terrorists by working to support and protect vulnerable people.
