Springwell Leeds Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, this is something to which all our staff and volunteers are fully committed.
What is safeguarding?
Safeguarding legislation and the UK Government states that Safeguarding is:-
- protecting vulnerable children from abuse or neglect.
- making sure people are fully supported in order to gain access to health care and stay well.
- ensuring that children are growing up in safe and effective environments.
- taking action in order to ensure that all children and young adults have support to achieve the best possible outcomes.
- making sure that all children and young adults receive safe and nurturing care.
- it is making sure that all children and young people are supported in order to have a full and happy life.
We have a number of Designated Safeguarding Officers, based across each of our sites:
