The safety and well being of our students is our primary concern. If you are in any way concerned about the safety or wellbeing of a child, please refer to the Thurrock Local Safeguarding Children Board, which displays the relevant contact numbers to access assistance.
The Academy takes the welfare and safety of students very seriously, working hard to reduce all the kinds of harm that children can suffer, including abuse, bullying, discrimination and avoidable injuries. We strive to make sure that every student in the Academy feels secure, well cared for, and able to reach their full potential.
The Academy understands and is committed to the vital contribution that all governors, staff, parents and students can make to safeguarding children. Our curriculum is designed to create awareness in students of safeguarding issues and how to deal with them. Training of all staff in identifying, reporting procedures and dealing with such issues is regular and thorough.
We will continue to ensure that all our staff, other professionals, parents/carers and students work together to know the rules about keeping children safe. They will understand the importance of following procedures and listening to each other, especially when there are concerns about safety.
Our procedures comply with the letter and the spirit of guidance, regulation and best practice. Our policies, which contain further details, can be found on the links below.
