The safety and wellbeing of all of our students and staff is of upmost importance at Haywood Academy. We fully comprehend our responsibility to promote the welfare of all children and young people and to keep them safe. We believe that ensuring our students feel safe is fundamental in enabling them to achieve their potential both socially and academically. We are committed to providing an environment where children can play, learn, develop and achieve, and where they are safeguarded, supported and are enabled to disclose if they are being harmed in some way.
If you have any safeguarding concerns, please contact our safeguarding team immediately.
The safeguarding team can be contacted via email [email protected], [email protected] or [email protected]. You can also call the main reception on 01782 853535 and asking to speak to a member of the safeguarding team.
All staff are provided with comprehensive safeguarding policies and are trained to ensure Haywood Academy is a safe environment. Both teaching and non-teaching staff are aware of their responsibilities to our students, and the procedures involved in protecting and nurturing individuals. All safeguarding policies are regularly reviewed and staff receive regular training refreshers to ensure the best practices and procedures are in place.
