Safeguarding at the Bewbush Academy


How do we keep The Bewbush Academy safe?


The Bewbush Academy believes that all staff and volunteers should provide a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment that promotes the social, physical and moral development of every child. We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent, effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children, staff, volunteers and visitors at our school.


All of our staff and governors share the objective to help keep the children safe by:

  • Providing a safe environment for them to learn;

  • Identifying children who are suffering or likely to suffer harm/ significant harm and taking appropriate action with the aim of making sure that they are kept safe at home, at school and in the community.

To achieve this, we:

  • Aim to prevent unsuitable people from working with the children;

  • Promote safe practice and challenge any poor or unsafe practice ;

  • Identify instances where there are grounds for concern about a child’s welfare and initiate or take appropriate action to keep them safe;

  • Contribute to effective partnership working between all those involved in providing services for our children.

We have a dedicated safeguarding team and someone from this team will always be available to speak to any child or adult with any concern.
