Safeguarding and Inclusion

At The Green Way Academy we ensure every measure is taken to safeguard any child who is at risk.

Under the 1989 Children Act, we have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children who are in need. We ensure that children in our Academy are protected from harm; any child we believe to be at risk of significant harm is reported to the appropriate service.

The academy's Inclusion Team work closely with many different services to support the needs of our pupils and families. Our main aim is to ensure children are free from harm at all times and feel safe in school. Please find links below that offer guidance and the policies we follow in school.

Safeguarding Pathways that we Follow in School

Trust Response to Everyone's Invited-April 2021


Our commitment: Trust statement from the CEO

https://www.everyonesinvited.uk/


"Like everyone, we've been appalled by the stories that are emerging across the country. It is completely unacceptable that girls are being treated in this way and we have a collective responsibility as education leaders to take a stand. We pride ourselves on being a highly inclusive family of schools, and whilst we have strong systems and controls in place as part of our work on equality, diversity and inclusion focusing on gender, racism, sexuality and disability, we want to make sure we are leaving no stone unturned in eradicating these insidious behaviours.


"In addition to our existing practices, we are taking steps to ensure that each of our schools has the means to capture testimony from students - either anonymously or in person through safe spaces - so that there is every opportunity to uncover any issues, past or present. We all need to go further and shine a light on these issues so that they are brought out in the open and dealt with swiftly, including involving the police. To do otherwise, makes us part of the problem.


School Response to Everyone's Invited-April 2021

You may have seen in the news recently the Everyone’s Invited Campaign.

https://www.everyonesinvited.uk/

This website allows pupils to share testimonials of abuse and assault.It is completely unacceptable that pupils are being treated in this way and we have a collective responsibility as a school and trust to take a stand. As a trust we pride ourselves on being a highly inclusive family of schools and we want to make sure we are leaving no stone unturned in stopping these incidents from happening in the first place and use our skills as educators to raise awareness.

In our school, it is very important that we care for and look after each other. We want everyone at our remarkable school to feel safe and happy and to be a good friend to all.

We will be talking about being a good friend a lot over the next few weeks. We will talk about it in class and in assemblies too. We care about each and every one of our pupils and we want them to have the very best time at school without having to worry about anybody being unkind to them.

If you have any concerns at all, we urge you to share them with us so that we can take the right action. You can contact the school via our Worry Box https://docs.google.com/.../1FAIpQLScsry5fGVR.../viewform or email Maria Woods our Designated Safeguarding Officer :

We are writing to let you know about an innovative project that schools in Humberside are participating in. The project, called Operation Encompass, is being run in partnership with Humberside Police.

The project aims to support children who are affected by Domestic Abuse. Being exposed to domestic abuse is distressing for a young person, who can often see the abuse, hear it from another room, see a parent's injuries or distress afterwards or be physically hurt trying to stop the abuse.

As a result, following any domestic abuse incident being reported into Humberside Police specialist Police Officers will make contact with the school and communicate relevant and necessary information to nominated and trained school staff. This will ensure that the school is made aware before the start of the next school day and can subsequently provide support in a way that means the child feels safe.

Each school has a member of staff (Maria Woods) who has been fully trained to liaise with the Police, when required, and will ensure that necessary support is made available to the child following the disclosure of a domestic abuse incident.

We believe that this project demonstrates the schools commitment to working in partnership, to safeguard and protect children, and to providing the best possible care and support for our pupils.

In the meantime, if you would like to speak to someone about the project or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact maria Woods on 01482 331378
