Unsworth Academy

Safeguarding Policies

Unsworth Academy and our sponsor Shaw Education Trust, subsequently referred to in these policy documents as ‘SET’, have a duty to ensure that appropriate policies and supporting procedures, protocols or guidelines are in place to comply with legislation, enabling all children, pupils and learners to be kept safe.

Shaw Education Trust Safeguarding Policy

About This Policy

The policy has been developed to ensure that all adults in SET are working together to safeguard and promote the welfare of pupils.

This policy describes the management systems and arrangements in place to create and maintain a safe learning environment for all our pupils. It identifies actions that should be taken to redress any concerns about child welfare.

The Headteacher, or in their absence the authorised member of staff, has the ultimate responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of pupils at their school.

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of pupils goes beyond implementing basic child protection procedures. It is an integral part of all activities and functions of SET. This policy complements and supports other relevant SET and school policies, available on the SET or school websites.

Under the Education Act 2002 schools have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of their pupils and, in accordance with guidance set out in ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children, July 2018’, all elements of SET will work in partnership with other organisations where appropriate to identify any concerns about pupil welfare and take actions to address them.

Unsworth Academy Safeguarding Policy

About This Policy

This policy is reviewed annually, and the procedures and implementation are updated and reviewed regularly with the academy councillors to ensure that they carry out their statutory duties. This safeguarding policy forms part of a suite of documents and policies which relate to the safeguarding responsibilities of Unsworth Academy.

Unsworth Academy is a learning community in which all members can thrive, regardless of culture, race, religion, gender or individual need. We hope to inspire and challenge all to succeed in learning for life; to know and care for each individual; and create a safe supportive community, working to educate the citizens of today.

The aims of this policy are to inform staff, supply staff, parent/carers, volunteers and Academy Councillors about Unsworth Academy’s responsibilities for safeguarding children, and to enable everyone to have a clear understanding of how these responsibilities should be carried out.
