At West Bromwich Collegiate Academy, the safety and wellbeing of all of our students is of the highest importance; we have a collective responsibility to ensure that our children have all the support they need to flourish through their education. Shireland Collegiate Academy Trust has an outstanding safeguarding team that is responsible for all of the schools within the Trust. They work to ensure that children have the best opportunities and provide support to families when needed.
It is our responsibility to provide a secure environment for our children, where they are free to learn without barriers. All of our staff will complete statutory safeguarding training each year and will take part in additional training across a wide range of safeguarding areas such as: Domestic Violence and Abuse Support, Female Genital Mutilation, Child Sexual Exploitation, Forced Marriage and Honour Based Abuse.
All staff are trained in recognising the signs that a child may be at risk of or suffering from harm and are aware of the procedures to follow should they have a concern.
Our procedures for reporting safeguarding concerns are displayed in all areas of the academy and can be found here.
