Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy

Fulbridge Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment.

At Fulbridge there is nothing more important to us than the physical and emotional health and well-being of our pupils and staff alike. 

You can contact or speak to your child’s class teacher after school, speak to a member of the Senior Leadership Team or our Safeguarding Lead, all of whom are happy to talk though any concerns or worries you may have.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy, this can be found at the bottom of this page.

The Academy has a safeguarding team led by the Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mr Smee and Deputy Safeguarding Lead, Mr George Edwards.

What support can we offer you and/or your child?

We have a Safeguarding Officer who works closely with all staff in school and liaises with external agencies for example, Children's Social Care, Police and Health Services to ensure a fully inclusive working relationship around all of our students.

We have access to external support through the Early Help process, if your child needs some additional support we can look at a whole family assessment to see which service would be most suitable. We work closely with support agencies such as Sleep Solutions, NSPCC and Family Action and we can also help support parents, carers and families with out of school worries for example, housing, debt and crisis.
