Safeguarding underpins everything we do at Christ Church CEP Academy and as a result our pupils say that they feel safe and happy at our school.

Mrs Cook is the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) and should be the first point of contact if anyone in our school community feels worried about a child. In accordance with Keeping children safe in education 2016 we also have appointed deputies who act in Mrs Cook's absence. The deputy DSLs are Mrs Hutchings, Mrs Doughty, Mrs Clarke, Mrs Richter and Mrs Reene.

Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility and we take our responsibility to teach our pupils to keep themselves safe very seriously. This takes place through the main school curriculum and through specific events and opportunities such as Anti-Bullying Week, Online Safety Day, working with NSPCC and Childline.

We acknowledge that we are living in an increasingly technological world and that our pupils have access to the internet and other electronic communication. Online Safety forms an important part of our computing curriculum and these principles are instilled in our pupils from their first day at school. You can find out more about online safety by clicking here.

Christ Church CEP Academy is proud to be a diverse and multicultural community. Our pupils treat each other with respect regardless of beliefs, culture or background. We acknowledge our role in helping to combat radicalisation and extremism as detailed in The Prevent Duty.
