Haven High Academy gives the highest importance to the safeguarding and welfare of our children. The Academy Council, Headteacher and staff will carry out their responsibilities efficiently, effectively and diligently to ensure that the academy is a safe learning environment for our children.
We recognise that, at times, our children may be vulnerable and we will always adopt a sensitive approach to support our pupils and families.
Everyone in our academy is aware of their responsibility to keep our children safe. All staff attend regular child protection training, in addition to this, staff and volunteers also access a safeguarding and child protection briefing and regular updates. Everyone working with our children has a responsibility to help keep our children safe by providing an environment that will allow our pupils to be happy, cared for and to develop a love of learning.
If you have ANY concerns about the welfare or safety of a child, please contact reception and ask to speak in confidence with one of the Designated Persons for Child Protection and Safeguarding on:
If you believe that a young person or child is in immediate danger, left alone or missing, contact Police and/or Ambulance on 999.
The action we take to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm is everyone’s responsibility.
Everyone who comes into contact with children and families at our academy has a role to play.
