Here at the Academy St James we take the safeguarding of all our pupils extremely seriously.

We have a duty of care to ensure all our children are safe, we do this by making sure that everyone who comes into the building is suitable for working with children.  We also work hard to minimise the risk in the grounds and building.

If we have concerns about the safety of any children we follow the procedures set out in the Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy. This policy explains how we would deal with any issue if we think children may not be safe, including the steps we would take if we felt children were not safe at home.
