At GLPA, our academy community has a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. This means that we have a Child Protection Policy and Procedures in place. All staff including our volunteers and supply staff are CRB/DBS checked. Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will always ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with their parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that this is not in the child's best interests.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Waddington.
The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads is Mrs Hector
In addition Miss Egan, Mr Brakefield and Mrs Kirwan are all L3 advanced safeguarding practitioners.
Mrs Carlisle has overall responsibility for GLPA.
Prevent is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist or extremist causes. From July 2015, all schools have a duty to safeguard children from radicalisation and extremism.
Below is the Parent Pamphlet we have sent out to all parents outlining what this means at GLPA and a link to the most recent advice from Leeds City Website.The information provided on the site will provide people with knowledge of Prevent in Leeds, how to notice the signs of radicalisation and where to go for support. There are also links to very useful documents as well as information on the Channel programme that we hope people find useful.
Should you have any further questions, please contact the academy office.
