Keeping Our Children Safe

The health, safety and well-being of all our children is of paramount importance to all the adults who work in our school. Our children have the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, race, culture or disability. They have a right to be safe in our school.

In our school we respect our children. Through our strong family ethos we foster trust, mutual respect and a clear sense of community. The atmosphere within our school is one that encourages all children to do their best. We provide opportunities that enable our children to take and make decisions for themselves. Our teaching of Religious Education, personal, social, citizenship and health education, as part of our enriched curriculum, helps to develop appropriate attitudes in our children and makes them aware of the impact of their decisions on others. We also teach them how to recognise different risks in different situations, and how to behave in response to them.

Our policies ensure that all staff and governors in our school are clear about the actions necessary with regard to a child protection issue. Our aims are:

To raise the awareness of all staff and identify responsibility in reporting possible cases of abuse;

To ensure effective communication between all staff when dealing with child protection issues;

To lay down the correct procedures for those who encounter an issue of child protection.

At St Martins Academy we take the well being of your child very seriously. Miss Smith is designated officer for child protection along with Miss Leese and Miss Boynton. Should you have any concerns with issues in relation to your child please contact the school.
