Safeguarding

The Greetland Academy is committed to providing a secure and supportive environment in which children can develop and grow into mature and responsible people. Safeguarding children is a central part of our whole academy approach to ensure that children are protected from abuse and neglect and that every child reaches their full potential. This is achieved by:

  • Creating an environment whereby high standards of work, effort and behaviour are expected and rewarded with praise and encouragement.
  • Providing a curriculum, which will help all children to develop their full potential.
  • Providing appropriate training and learning opportunities to sustain the personal and professional development of all staff, governors and volunteers.
  • Developing an academy community where everyone feels valued and secure, shows understanding of others, respects diversity and promotes equality of opportunity and encourages a sense of pride in our academy.
  • Working in partnership with parents by offering support, information and advice about their child’s learning and development.

We are pleased to have received our second ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ certifcate from the NSPCC following our classes’ completion of another really positive set of workshops with NSPCC trainers. It was lovely to receive the following message from the NSPCC:
“As a huge thank you from all of us at the NSPCC for your success with our fundraising we have sent a ‘Furry Buddy’ for your school to keep. Congratulations you are the first school in our area to receive one and I am so proud and thankful for all your effort. Please give a great big thank you to the children.”
