Safeguarding / Prevent
“Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of students is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with students and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding … this means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the student”.
Keeping Children In Education (Statutory Guidance for schools 2016)
Safeguarding – students, staff, parents, governors, visitors …
As a school, safeguarding our students and staff is our key priority. Our policies and practices follow the most recent government statutory guidance.
Staff have regular safeguarding training and updates and we also have dedicated safeguarding officers. There are posters around school for visitors and students explaining who to get in contact with if they have a safeguarding concern.
We also teach our students about keeping themselves safe in school, out of school and when using the internet.
You will find contact information in our safeguarding policy (attached) as well as advice on what to do. Our school also takes an active involvement in the Prevent Agenda.
Safeguarding students from all risks of harm is an important part of the school’s work and protecting them from extremism is one aspect of that. Our Prevent policy is also attached.

Prevent / SMSC
Since the ‘Education and Inspections Act 2006’ schools have a duty to promote community cohesion. Over the last few years, global events have led to a growth of extremist viewpoints, including advocacy of violent extremism.
At All Saints' Catholic Academy we ensure that through our school mission, values, rules, diverse curriculum and teaching we promote tolerance and respect for all cultures, faiths and lifestyles. The governing body also ensures that this ethos is reflected and implemented effectively in school policy and practice and that there are effective risk assessments in place to safeguard and promote students’ welfare.
We promote SMSC through our curriculum and through all the extra-curricular opportunities offered to our students.
