We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy which can be viewed below.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Peter Halford (Executive Academy Head), Our Deputy Safeguarding Leads are Mrs Claire Appleby (Drake's) & Mrs Penny Bailey (Drake's), Mrs Anne Pelosi (Otterton) & Mrs Emma Cocker (Otterton). Our Safeguarding Governor is Corinna Tigg.
