Year 8 were fantastic this morning! Such incredible independent learning from them preparing for their assessments. I almost felt surplus to requirements!

Hugely impressed with Year 8 today. They worked so hard on their assessed group drumming performances and then had such incredible focus doing their evaluations (pictured). Impeccable attitude and behaviour from them. And some very talented musicians too!

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as: protecting children from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children's health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

Safeguarding is a priority in our school. Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone's responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred.

What is Safeguarding?

Safeguarding covers the actions we take to protect the welfare all our students.

What is Child Protection?

Child Protection concerns actions taken for those students who have been identified as having suffered or may be at risk of suffering significant harm.

The School’s Duty of Care:

We have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of our students under the Education Act 2002 and Children Act 1999 by identifying any child where welfare concerns exist and taking action to address them in partnership with families and other agencies where appropriate.

The school works within the London Child Protection Procedures (London Safeguarding Children Board) which has been adopted by the Sutton Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) and in accordance with the Government documents:

  • “Working Together to Safeguard Children”
  • Keeping Children Safe in Education

The designated Safeguard Lead and Looked After Children for Harris Academy Sutton is Miss Carly Houghton.
