Safeguarding Summary

St Giles Academy is committed to safeguarding and ensuring the welfare of all our pupils. 

To achieve this, we have systems in place which are designed to:

  • Create and maintain a safe learning environment.
  • Identify child welfare concerns and take appropriate action.
  • Use the curriculum to enable our children to develop keep safe strategies.
  • Operate safer recruitment and selection procedures.

Anyone visiting the school shares the responsibility to keep children safe whilst on our premises and will be required to work within the guidelines of our safeguarding procedures.


If at any time you have concerns about the welfare of a child, then do not hesitate to speak to one of  the designated safeguarding lead (DSL), Sue Ewens or Lucy Kelly. Where you have concerns about the conduct of a member of staff following an observation or disclosure, then you must immediately inform David Milner (Principal), or if the concern is in regards to them, Claire Constantopoulos (Executive Principal) or the LADO (Local Authority Designated Officer - 01522554674).

Please ensure you behave professionally and display the ID badge provided at all times whilst on school property. 

For more information please ask for a copy of our Safeguarding/Child Protection Policy and/or our Visitor Policy.

Thank you.
