At Hareclive E-ACT Academy, safeguarding is an integral part of everything we do. If you have any concerns about the safety or wellbeing of a child, please speak to a member of our safeguarding team (above). Our safeguarding expectations are lead by the guidance provided in the Keeping Children Safe in Education document. All staff have read and signed this agreement and it is prevalent in our safeguarding policies and practices. We also cover safeguarding topics and content through our e-safety esense curriculum
We teach children how to stay safe through regular assemblies, our jigsaw PSHE curriculum and our e-safety commitment.
We also have four academy safeguarding ambassadors who work alongside the headteacher to develop ways to ensure childrens’ safety both inside and outside of school.
The below links are some useful sites which also promote safety of children and may support you in knowing who to refer to when reporting a safeguarding incident.
