SAFEGUARDING
    Why your child is safe at our academy.

All Saints National Academy and St Chad's Trust prioritise the safeguarding of our pupils. Your child’s safety is of paramount importance and we have clear and consistent procedures in place to ensure that your child is safe. We meet all of the statutory requirements and regularly monitor safeguarding provision.

We have a lead member of staff responsible for Child Protection and Safeguarding (Principal) who meets regularly with the lead local academy committee member for safeguarding to monitor the impact of what we have in place; also ensuring we adhere to all legislation.

We have a Pastoral Team made up of :-

  • Pastoral Assistant Principal -                      Mrs Meers

  • Safeguarding and Attendance officer -      Mrs Bassi

  • SEN support officer/Mental Health First Aider & Lego Therapist - Miss Sims

 Below is an overview of the areas of academy life which ensure the safety of our children.

  • Safe recruitment of staff – including training of interview panel and DBS checks.

  • Clear and regularly reviewed policies for child protection, behaviour, safeguarding and many other related policies.

  •  Site safety - All visitors report to the main office in order to gain access to the building. Outside doors are only accessible by a door entry fob system held by staff members. We have a secure fenced boundary which is regularly        inspected and improved where necessary.

  • Pupil Involvement

  • We have a Pupil Voice team and a Safeguarding Squad who support with the decision making and pastoral care of all in our academy.

  • Every fortnight we have a SAFEGUARDING SPOTLIGHT, whereby we focus in on an area within worship and lessons then share our learning with the whole academy the following week. You can see what we are focussing on below.

  • 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. We hold pupil interviews and questionnaires annually to check that pupil’s feel safe.

  • 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. 

  • Behaviour  we have high expectations of behaviour. We have a positive discipline policy which enables children to be clear about their responsibilities with regard to behaviour. We work in partnership with our parents/carers if there are any concerns.

  • We don’t tolerate bullying and we act swiftly and procedures if there are any concerns or issues

  • Educational visits are always risk assessed. We ensure the ratio of adults to children meets or exceeds requirements so that your children can enjoy their school trips. 

  • We have 8 members of staff who are fully trained Paediatric First Aiders accompanied with 7 staff who are First Aid trained. We ave a trained Mental Health First Aider. Staff are also trained to deal with specific medical needs of children and administer care plan requirements.

  • Health and Safety  must be rigorous at all times. Our  estates team has a termly meeting with the Principal to monitor and discuss all aspects of H&S. The site is inspected every 6 months by Elite H&S

  • We provide a termly safeguarding report to governors. This ensures all aspects of safety provision are up to date. We complete an annual safeguarding audit for Walsall Safeguarding and Children’s Boards.

  • We have a strong belief in partnership working with our families. Our open door policy means that effective communication can take place.
