Safe header 1

 

Chiltern Way Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. 

 

Staff and regular volunteers are appointed in line with our selection and recruitment policy which includes checks on suitability, including Disclosure and Barring Service checks. We expect all staff and volunteers to share our commitment and understand their responsibilities in keeping our pupils safe.

At Chiltern Way Academy, safeguarding means:

· Protecting students from maltreatment

· Preventing impairment to children’s health or development

· Ensuring students are growing up with the provision of safe and effective care

· Taking action to enable all pupils to have the best outcomes

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Safeguarding Policy. Policies can be viewed on our website in the practical information section or by clicking on the link below.

If there are concerns about a child’s welfare it may be necessary for us to share information and work in partnership with other agencies. Any such concerns will always be discussed with parents/carers unless we have reason to believe this would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism

Our Academy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Emma Bryan. Our Campus DSL's are: Wendover - Tom Stibbs, Prestwood - Emma Bryan, Bierton - Jo Dolder and Wokingham - Rebecca Archer.
