It is in line with the Newcastle Safeguarding Children Board Child Protection Procedures, "Working Together to Safeguard Children" (2013) 'Keeping Children Safe in Education: Information for all School and College Staff' and 'What to do if you are worried a child is being abused' (2006)
This policy applies to all adults, including volunteers, working in or on behalf of the school.
Everyone working in or for our academy shares an objective to help keep children and young people safe by contributing to:
Providing a safe environment for children and young people to learn and develop in our school setting and identifying children and young people who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm, and taking appropriate action with the aim of making sure they are kept safe both at home and in our school setting
Trinity Academy is committed to Safeguarding and Promoting the Welfare of all of its pupils. Each pupil's welfare is of paramount importance. We recognise that some children may be especially vulnerable to abuse. We recognise that children who are abused or neglected may find it difficult to develop a sense of self worth and to view the world in a positive way. Whilst at Trinity, their behaviour may be challenging. We recognise that some children who have experienced abuse may harm others. We will always take a considered and sensitive approach in order that we can support all of our pupils.
