We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and will strive to ensure:
- that the school provides a safe environment for children and young people to learn
- that the required systems and procedures are in place to identify children and young people who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm
- that appropriate action is taken with the aim of making sure they are kept safe both at home and at school. All concerns are recorded on a safeguarding concern form.
At Newsome Academy we are proud to work in conjunction with a number of external agencies to ensure that you, our students, get the best care and access to any help you may need. Some of these services are listed below:
- Thriving Kirklees
- Alex Timpson Trust
- Northorpe Hall
- The Diana Award
- THINK! – Road safety
- Network Rail
This list is not exhaustive. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact a member of the Safeguarding Team, who can support further.
