The academy places great emphasis on the safeguarding of children and all procedures are robustly in place. Grange Lane Infant Academy has in place safeguarding and child protection policies that have been agreed by the governing body and are known to all staff. We operate safer recruitment procedures and make sure that all appropriate checks are carried out on new staff and volunteers. Children feel safe and have an identified ‘trusted person’ in school with whom they feel they can share worries and the school always gives opportunities for children to express their concerns. The Designated Safeguarding Lead is the Principal, Mrs L Chappell and the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Kay Shaw, Pastoral Manager. Mrs Linsey Tomlinson, Office Manager is also trained to level 3 Safeguarding standard.
