The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.

Leaders have created a strong culture of safeguarding throughout the school. They ensure that teachers receive appropriate training, including around peer-on-peer abuse. Leaders and teachers are vigilant. They are alert to pupils’ concerns. Staff know how to spot signs of abuse.

Leaders and staff work well with other agencies to support pupils who need help. They have developed strong systems to support pupils’ mental health and wellbeing.

Pupils are clear about who they can go to should they need help. They are confident about how to alert staff to any safeguarding concerns. Pupils know how to keep safe, including when online.
