Treverbyn Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
This means that we have a Child Protection Policy and procedures in place which we refer to in our policy below. Parents and carers are welcome to request a hard copy from the school office.
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 ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is James Gentile and the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads (DDSL) are Helen Craig and David Freckelton. The designated person for Children in Care is James Gentile.
