Jubilee Academy takes the safeguarding of our pupils seriously.

Your child’s safety is of paramount importance and we have procedures in place to ensure that your child is kept safe both in and out of school.
Our school follows the child protection procedures as defined by Walsall Safeguarding Partnership (https://go.walsall.gov.uk/walsall-safeguarding-partnership/) and Multi-Agency Guidance on the Continuum of Need. We work with partners to ensure the best outcomes for children and young people.

We have a team of staff responsible for Child Protection and Safeguarding and our Safeguarding lead is the Assistant Principal of the Academy, Mrs Joe Westwood. The team meets regularly with the lead governors for safeguarding to monitor the impact of what we have in place; also ensuring we adhere to all legislation.

To ensure our practices are of a high standard we adhere to the following:

–Safe recruitment of staff– including training of interview panel, gaining references and all DBS checks. This includes volunteers and our PFA.
-Clear and regularly reviewed policies for child protection, behaviour, safeguarding and many other related policies.
-We hold regular discussions with the children regarding what is in place in our academy to keep them safe and to improve awareness of their personal safety, including what to do and who to speak to if they have any worries or concerns.
-E safety– we have clear procedures that all children use, in order to improve their safety whilst on the internet at school and at home. We regularly remind parents the importance of keeping their children safe on the internet and to assist this we hold regular parent workshops in School.
-We don’t tolerate bullying and necessary procedures are in place, if there are any concerns or issues.
-Educational visits are always risk assessed. We ensure the ratio of adults to children meets or exceeds requirements, so that your children can enjoy their school trips!
-Health and Safety must be rigorous at all times.
-We teach the children many aspects of their personal safety through our curriculum. Discussions on safety measures and how they can keep themselves safe take place regularly and they follow the Jigsaw program for PSHE.
-We provide a termly safeguarding report to governors. This ensures all aspects of safety provision are up to date.
-We have a strong belief in partnership working with our families. Our open door policy means that effective communication can take place at all times, along with parent workshops.
