Safeguarding“Whickham, a school to be proud of at the heart of the community. Where learning is cherished in a safe, caring and supportive environment. A school where everyone is valued and inspired to be the best they can be.” – (Whickham School and Sports College – The School Vision)
At Whickham School we recognise how important it is for all individuals to work in a safe environment in order for them to flourish and achieve. We therefore make it a key priority that all individuals in our school are aware of their responsibilities and obligations to maintain that safe environment.
The attached documents give an overview of the training given to staff and the briefings given to students each year to remind them of their responsibilities and to remind them of key procedures to maintain the highest levels of safeguarding for students and adults.
