“A good child protection system should be concerned with a child’s journey through the system from needing to receiving help, keeping a clear focus on children’s best interests throughout.” Professor Eileen Munro, Children’s Commissioner for England June 2010

We believe an inspirational education, whilst feeling safe and supported and cared for, is the right of every child.

At The Rudheath Senior Academy we are passionate about ensuring children in our schools are nurtured, listened to and protected from harm.

Our children have the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, race, culture or disability. Children have a right to be safe and feel safe in our school.

School Commitment

The school is committed to creating and maintaining a safe learning environment for children and young people, identifying where there are child welfare concerns and taking action to address them, in partnership with families and other agencies.

 “Schools, colleges and other educational providers have a pivotal role to play in safeguarding children and promoting their welfare.”
