At Acre Rigg Academy, we regard the safeguarding of children as our main priority. We believe that we all have the right to be happy, to be safe and to learn. We all have the responsibility to make this happen.
- The welfare of the child remains paramount.
- All children regardless of their age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin, religious beliefs and/or sexual identity have the right to be protected from harm.
- All suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.
- All staff and volunteers working at our school have a responsibility to report concerns to the designated leads for Safeguarding Mrs Bate, Mrs Richards, Mrs Craggs, Mr Dixon and Mrs Evans.
