We consider the welfare and safeguarding of all our students to be of paramount importance. How we understand and work positively with our students and their families is crucial to supporting their progress and is essential to their overall success as a student here at Kinetic Academy.

Our designated Safeguarding and Child Protection Officer is Nadine Berry.  A copy of our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy can be obtained here.

All staff have completed their Level 1 Safeguarding Training, with a number of staff completing their Level 2 Safeguarding certificates.  We provide annual refresher training and regular updates for all of our staff team, including any volunteers and our Voluntary Advisory Committee.

We have developed very close links with our Local Children’s Safeguarding Board,, who offer a full range of Safeguarding approved training. Our team also access  higher level training on specific issues for example such as Extremism, Radicalisation and Prevent,  FGM (Female Genital Mutilation), CSE (Child Sexual Exploitation), Hidden Harm.  We believe that it is of high importance to have the skills, knowledge and understanding to safeguard all of our students well and to work with families who may need additional support.

If you have any concerns, or wish to talk through any aspects of concern either as a student/parent/carer, please feel free to contact the Designated Safeguarding Officer on (01782) 333344
