Unity City Academy is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors and promoting a climate where children and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others.

The Academies Child Protection policy draws upon the principles of “Every Child Matters”, duties conferred by the Children Acts 1989 and 2004, S175/157 of the 2002 Education Act, the Education & Inspections Act 2006 and the guidance contained in “Working Together to Safeguard Children”, “What To Do If You’re Worried A Child Is Being Abused”, the DfE Circular – “Safeguarding Children and Safer Recruitment in Education” (2007), the DfE guidance – “Dealing with Allegations of Abuse Against Teachers and Other Staff” (2011), Ofsted Guidance issued in 2011 and procedures produced by the London Safeguarding Children Board and the Southwark Safeguarding Children Board. The policy is applicable to all on and off-site activities undertaken by pupils whilst they are the responsibility of the School.

There are four main elements to our policy:

 PREVENTION through the teaching and pastoral support offered to pupils and the creation and maintenance of a whole academy protective ethos

 PROCEDURES for identifying and reporting cases, or suspected cases, of abuse.  The definitions of the four categories of abuse are attached (see Appendix A)

 SUPPORTING VULNERABLE CHILDREN those who may have been abused or witnessed violence towards others.
