Safeguarding

Young People’s Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We ensure that consistent and effective safeguarding procedures and policies are in place to support pupils and staff at school and follow the guidance of Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2019. If a pupil or parent has a concern they should contact the school immediately.

Please see our Child Protection, Adult Protection and Safeguarding Policy for further details.

Child Protection, Adult Protection and Safeguarding Policy

If anyone is worried that a pupil is being abused or there are safeguarding issues, the senior designated member of staff should be contacted. Alternatively you can contact the LADO (Local Authority Designated Officer) at the Local Authority.

As part of safeguarding the pupils of the Young Peoples Academy we will ensure that no political view is promoted. If political views are discussed as part of the school curriculum we will ensure this is a balanced discussion.

The safeguarding page on your website is the best I have seen and I have seen many. Having both the contact details of your safeguarding team as well as MASH and LADO contact details is such a good idea it is surprising that it is not standard practice.  I am going to strongly suggest that more schools adopt your model and I will share it as good practice.

YPA has a good understanding and built a rapport with my son. He has been happy and well cared for to the point where he has met his full potential and thrived. The right balance and structure has provided for my son’s complex needs. Thank you for your continuous support.  Parent
