Safeguarding Information

St Aldhelm’s Academy is committed to safeguarding children and promoting children’s welfare. It expects all staff, governors, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment and maintain a vigilant and safe environment. It is our willingness to work in a safe manner and challenge inappropriate behaviour that underpins this commitment.

Please note, our ‘Child Protection and Safeguarding’ and ‘Anti-Bullying’ policies can be found in the Academy Information section of this website:
