Safeguarding is everyone’s Responsibility

 

“Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined for the purposes of this guidance as: protecting children from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.“ KCSIE 2020

St Edmund’s Catholic Academy is committed to the highest standards in protecting and safeguarding the young people entrusted into our care at all times.

The health, well-being and safety of all students who attend the academy is our paramount concern. Young people have the right to feel safe and protected, regardless of age, religion, gender, sexuality, race, culture or disability. As a Catholic academy, we believe that all our learners are equal in the sight of God and this understanding informs all that we do to safeguard and protect them.

The internet is a vast resource, with great benefits to teaching and learning.  In order to ensure our learners and staff are only presented with content that is relevant and suitable to them we provide strict internet filtering and monitoring. Internet activity is actively monitored and new sites are categorised to ensure the highest level of safety. To further enhance and understand the context in which learners are using the internet a tool called Securus is also used to monitor students overall computer usage.

St Edmund’s Catholic Academy follows the ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education (Sept 2020)’ guidelines and should be read in conjunction with ‘Working together to Safeguard Children (Feb 2018)’.

All staff within the academy support and safeguard our young people in line with our ‘Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy’.
