Safeguarding Students

Aston Safeguarding Statement

‘All adults in school have a responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.’

Safeguarding children is a priority for the academy. We have clear aims, policies and procedures to keep children safe.

Our Child Protection Policy complies with the South Yorkshire Local Safeguarding Children Boards Child Protection Procedures, and can be found on our school website.

The procedures place a statutory duty on Aston Academy and adults in school to safeguard and promote the welfare of children with due consideration to equality.

Our systems are designed to:

  • Prevent unsuitable people working with children and young people
  • Promote safe practice and challenge poor and unsafe practice
  • Identify instances in which there are grounds for concern about a child’s welfare and give adults in school the route for them to take the appropriate action

The systems contribute to partnership working between all those involved with providing services for children which includes our community police officer, school nurse and social care.

The recruitment of staff to the academy is carried out with due regard to the statutory documentation from the DFE ‘Keeping children safe in education' (2015)
