Within Crofty Education Trust the health, safety and well-being of every pupil is our top priority. We expect all staff, governors/trustees and volunteers to share this commitment to safeguarding our pupils.

We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. All staff, in every school, are trained in Child Protection, and pupils are made aware of the adults they can talk to if they have any concerns. Staff are trained to look out for signs of physical/emotional harm or neglect and are required to report these to the Designated Safeguarding Lead.

We actively support the government’s Prevent agenda to counter radicalisation and extremism.

Our trust is committed to working in partnership with services and outside agencies and it is our responsibility to report concerns to the Multi Agency Referral Unit (MARU) to safeguard pupils.

The Safeguarding policy is agreed by all schools and can be found in the policies section of each school website.
