Safeguarding statement for Cottons Farm

Our Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The governing body has a duty of care to pupils and all members of the school community. There is in place a comprehensive child protection policy which, along with a policy for Health and Safety and a Prevent strategy, is regularly reviewed by the Governing body.

Our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy can be found on the policies page of the website and are also available upon request from the school office.

Prevent Duty

Working positively to protect young people from radicalisation.

You may have heard about the Prevent Duty, which aims to prevent young people from being radicalised by, for example, far right extremists or religious extremists.

In school we have a duty to care for the children and take note of any child who is at risk of radicalisation, regardless of their background. We also have to take steps to help prevent children being exposed to extremist ideas. Our overriding concern is that children feel safe and also express tolerance towards all cultures and religions, even when personal views may be different. Please read the booklet below for more information.
