Safeguarding at Grace Academy Solihull

Grace Academy fully recognises its responsibilities for safeguarding and promoting student welfare.

Safeguarding is “the process of protecting children from abuse or neglect, preventing impairment of their health and development, and ensuring they are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safer and effective care that enables children to have optimum life chances and ender adulthood successfully. (Working Together to Safeguard Children DCSF 2006).

Our policy applies to all staff, governors and volunteers working in the Academy.

Grace Academy Solihull has a dedicated team of staff who ensure Safeguarding of our students remains a priority.  The shared expertise of the team, alongside the provision of our Pastoral Team support our students to recognise potential risks to their own well-being as well as the well-being of others.
