"Safeguarding meets requirements. The leadership team ensure that all safeguarding procedures are in place. There is a culture of safeguarding, from the caretaker undertaking daily risk assessments on site to pupils being taught how to stay safe and to feel confident to disclose any worries or concerns they may have. The academy advisory board inform themselves through audits, visits and discussions with pupils that this is so. Staff are fully up to date in training and receive regular briefings in staff meetings. Everyone sees safeguarding as a priority. As a member of the board stated, 'No concern is too small a concern." (Ofsted July 2019)

Preventing Radicalisation is part of our commitment to keeping our pupils and the school community safe. Since the Education and Inspections Act 2006 schools have a duty to promote community cohesion. Over the last few years, global events have led to a growth of extremist viewpoints, including advocacy of violent extremism.  Schools have an important part to play in both educating children and young people about extremism and recognising when pupils start to become radicalised. In March 2015, new statutory duties were placed on schools by the Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015 which means they must work to prevent children being drawn into extremism.  Safeguarding children from all risks of harm is an important part of a school’s work and protecting them from extremism is one aspect of that.
