Safeguarding our students
Shenley Academy has a duty of care and is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of its students.
Safeguarding is about ensuring that everyone is safe from harm – safe from bullying, safe from people who could abuse, safe from discrimination or harassment – and that we all feel safe in our environment.
We have an open door policy so students can access support and guidance at all times.
We work in partnership with external agencies and professionals for specialised support where needed.
If you have any concerns about the welfare of yours or another child please talk to any teacher at the academy or you can speak directly to a member of the school’s safeguarding team.
Designated Safeguarding Lead: Miss Piercy
Deputy Designated Safeguarding Person: Mr Horgan
Miss Luckman, Mr Beeston, Mr Ewart, Miss McDonald & Mr Davies
Anonymous concerns can also be raised using the Sharp System.
