Our aim is for everyone within the Ebor Academy Trust to be safe to Work, Learn and Grow together.
We believe that there are three key aspects to safeguarding and that there should be clear policies, guidance, lines of accountability and monitoring of each aspect.
The three aspects are:
- Safe children
- Safe adults
- Safe environment
These form the basis of the Academy policy and the structure of the safeguarding team in each school. The name, role and photograph of each member of staff in the safeguarding team are displayed in each school.
We strive to ensure that all of our children are safe, happy and enjoy their childhoods. If you ever have any concerns about a child in our school please speak to our designated Safeguarding Lead, Miss Caroline Towler or, if Miss Towler is unavailable, our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead, Miss Natalie Blythe. Our Safeguarding Governor is Mrs Kerry Lee.
