This Safeguarding Policy has been developed in accordance with the principles established by the Children Act 1989 and 2004 and responsibilities under section 157 of the Education Act 2002. It reflects the current advice and guidance from the Department for Education and requires the academies in the network to take note of the priorities and to meet the requirements of their Local Safeguarding Children’s Board (LSCB). In particular, the policy is consistent with the London child protection procedures outlined in the following statutory guidance:

Keeping Children Safe in Education (Sept 2018)

Working Together to Safeguard Children (March 2018)
