At Workington Academy we recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where students and their families are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow recognised procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice. All children, regardless of age, gender, ability, culture, race, language, religion or sexual identity, have equal rights to protection.
- protecting children from maltreatment;
- preventing impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development;
- ensuring children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and
- taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
Please contact Miss H Smith Designated Safeguarding Lead if you have safeguarding or child protection concerns.
