The Trustees have agreed that Safeguarding First will provide all aspects of safeguarding training across our two academies. Both schools had a long standing relationship with Pam Gartland, prior to conversion, and have benefited from her immense experience and expertise in the past. Safeguarding First will be the sole provider of training and support. Each Headteacher , with their Local Academy Council ensures compliance and ensure safeguarding is effective. All academies within ILT will have a Safeguarding Action Plan. Progress through each Action Plan is monitored by the Headteachers and overseen by the CEO, Debra de Muschamp
Each Academy has an annually reviewed Child Protection Policy available on their website.
Trustees ensure that each LAC reflects all expectations in Keeping Children Safe in Education (current year) in their operation of their Academy.
The Trust has appointed Neil Macdonald Clyde as a Trustee with special responsibility for monitoring Safeguarding.
