Keeping Children Safe At Havant Academy

Having a fantastic education is important, but our top priority has been and always will be, the safety of our students whilst they are both in and out of school. All our members of staff at Havant Academy ensure that safeguarding practices are heavily embedded within everything they do at school in order ensure that all students have the best and safest lives whilst in our care.

At Havant Academy we take the welfare of our pupils extremely seriously.  Should you or your child have any concerns about the welfare of any pupil please contact one of the Academy’s Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs). Please be aware that if the school suspects abuse or neglect it may consider referring to Children’s Services.
