Thomas’s Academy fully recognises its responsibilities for child protection and is aware that the safeguarding and promotion of the welfare of children are of paramount importance. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice. Our procedures comply with DfE guidance and are in line with our local safeguarding children boards.


Our Safeguarding Policy applies to all staff, parents, volunteers, visitors and to pupils on and off the school site whilst they are the responsibility of the school.
