Safeguarding

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.

Miss Perkins 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 2021 we also have appointed deputies who act in Miss Perkins' absence. The Deputy DSLs are Mr Flack and Mrs Atkins 

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 Jigsaw 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 Jigsaw 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.
