Badock’s Wood E-ACT Academy has a duty of care to keep all our pupils safe. All our staff adhere strictly to the Keeping Children Safe in Education (September 2018) guidelines.
Safeguarding is a priority for everyone at the academy and it is important that all pupils and concerned adults feel they can ask for help or raise a concern at any time.
Our academy works in partnership with external agencies and professionals for specialised support when needed.
Please see our staying safe online page to read information to help make sure pupils are accessing the internet safely.

Our safeguarding expectations are led by the guidance provided in the Keeping Children Safe in Education document. All staff have read and signed this agreement and it is prevalent in our safeguarding policies and practices. We also cover safeguarding topics and content through our e-safety e-sense curriculum.
