Child protection and safeguarding
At Chalk Hill Academy we are committed to ensuring the safety and well being of every child and young person in our care.
Staff are all made aware of their legal duty to put the welfare and safety of children at the forefront of all they do, and receive regular training and updates in Child Protection and Safeguarding matters. Volunteers and visitors are also alerted to their duties and responsibilities with regard to Child Protection and Safeguarding.
