Safeguarding

Broadlands Academy is committed to the safeguarding and welfare of all of our students.

In order to support those enrolled at the academy, we have a dedicated Safeguarding Team of trained professionals who can offer advice and guidance.

If students have any concerns over their own safety and welfare, or the safety and welfare of another student, they should discuss this with their Form Tutor, their Year Co-ordinator, Mrs Genge (Pastoral Hub Co-ordinator), Mrs Barendt (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead and Student Welfare Assistant) or Mr Jackson (Designated Safeguarding Lead and Vice Principal).

Safeguarding:

All staff at Broadlands Academy have had safeguarding training and are alert to the possibility of risks and any safeguarding issues. If they recognise a concern, are told about a concern by a third party or if a student makes a disclosure to them, they have the duty and the responsibility to make their concerns known to one of the designated Safeguarding Team.
