Thanks to technology our pupils are able to keep in contact whilst school is closed. However we recognise that increased use of social media and online gaming may put our pupils at additional risk.
Please ensure that your child is behaving safely and being a good digital citizen when online. We ask that all parents regularly check online activity.

Safeguarding underpins everything we do at Christ Church CEP Academy and as a result our pupils say that they feel safe and happy at our school.

Mrs Cook is the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) and should be the first point of contact if anyone in our school community feels worried about a child. In accordance with Keeping children safe in education 2019 we also have appointed deputies who act in Mrs Cook's absence. The deputy DSLs are  Mrs Richter and Mrs Tickner.

Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility and we take our responsibility to teach our pupils to keep themselves safe very seriously. This takes place through the Prosper curriculum which is a fusion curriculum comprised of PSHE, Relationship Education, British Values, Christian Values, Character Education, Mindfulness and Online Safety. We also organise specific events and days such as Anti-Bullying Week, Online Safety Day, working with NSPCC and Childline School Service. You can find out more about Prosper by clicking here

We acknowledge that we are living in an increasingly technological world and that our pupils have access to the internet and other electronic communication. Online Safety forms an important part of our computing curriculum and these principles are instilled in our pupils from their first day at school. You can find out more about online safety by clicking here.

Christ Church CEP Academy is proud to be a diverse and multicultural community. Our pupils treat each other with respect regardless of beliefs, culture or background. We acknowledge our role in helping to combat radicalisation and extremism as detailed in The Prevent Duty.

Discrimination and prejudice in all it's forms is not tolerated at Christ Church CEP Academy. At Christ Church CEP Academy we uphold the diocesan's principles of Valuing All God's Children 2019 


Any allegations or concerns regarding a member of staff should be raised with the head teacher, chair of governors or directly with the LADO.
