Kingsmoor Academy and Academy Transformation Trust prioritise the safeguarding of all our pupils.  We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Your child’s safety is of paramount importance and we have procedures in place to ensure that your child is kept safe both in and out of school.

To ensure our practices are of a high standard we adhere to the following:

  • Safe recruitment of staff – including training of interview panel, gaining references and all DBS checks. This includes volunteers and our PTA.
  • Clear and regularly reviewed policies for child protection, behaviour, safeguarding and many other related policies.
  • We hold regular discussions with the children regarding what is in place in our academy to keep them safe and to improve awareness of their personal safety, including what to do and who to speak to if they have any worries or concerns.
  • E safety – we have clear procedures that all children use, in order to improve their safety whilst on the internet at school and at home. We regularly remind parents the importance of keeping their children safe on the internet.
  • We don’t tolerate bullying and necessary procedures are in place, if there are any concerns or issues.
  • We teach the children many aspects of their personal safety through our curriculum. Discussions on safety measures and how they can keep themselves safe take place regularly and they follow the Jigsaw program for PSHE.
  • We provide a termly safeguarding report to governors. This ensures all aspects of safety provision are up to date.
  • We have a strong belief in partnership working with our families. Our open-door policy means that effective communication can take place at all times.

We have a team of staff responsible for Child Protection and Safeguarding.
