IMPORTANT CORONOVIRUS INFORMATION:
Sparken Hill Academy is currently being utilised as a "hub" for a number of other schools. Please refer to the following addendum to augment our existing safeguarding procedures
We take our responsibilities to safeguard your children very seriously - please find below a copy of our Safeguarding Policy 2019-20 which each member of staff adhere to.
We work within Government Legislation Keeping Children Safe in Education 2019 (update) in conjunction with Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018. These documents highlight current significant national issues including preventing Radicalisation in line with the 'Prevent' Strategy (part of the government’s counter-terrorism strategy to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism) and with the internet available to every child in today's modern society an increased awareness of issues such as Grooming, Peer on Peer Abuse, Female Genital Mutilation and Child Sexual Exploitation. We work alongside external agencies including Health, Social Care, Police and Children Centres to ensure all our children are kept safe and protected from harm.
If you have any concerns about a child and would like to speak to a member of senior staff please call Mr Lilley, Mrs Moore or Mrs Rodgers on 01909 534060.
Alternatively, if you would just like an informal chat please give Karen Gardiner from the Community Team a call on 01909 534079.
