We take all aspects of safeguarding extremely seriously. Academy staff are in a good position to keep a watchful eye on children and to protect them from harm. All St Ursula’s staff receive training for safeguarding. If you have any safeguarding concerns about any aspect of the academy please make an appointment to see a member of the safeguarding team via the office.

Our safeguarding team are listed below. All safeguarding concerns are reported to these individuals who will investigate and take action if necessary.

  • Mrs Nicky Reynolds – Designated Safeguarding Lead, Single Point Of Contact and SCR Lead.

 

  • Mrs Clara White Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (Also has responsibility for Prevent, Female Genital Mutilation, Child Sexual Exploitation, Young Carers and Children Missing in Education)

 

 

 

 

  • Mrs Sarah Simpson – Safeguarding Team – Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead

  • Mr Neil Osborn – Safeguarding Team – has responsibility for Peer on Peer abuse and Online Safety

 

 

 

 

  • Mrs Dharani Pillay – Safeguarding Team – SENDCo, Designated Teacher of LAC/PLAC, also has responsibility as Mental Health mini lead and Modified Curriculum Plans.

  • Mrs Emma Cassell – Safeguarding Team

In addition to the team above, we also have the following mini leads:

  • Emily Corry – Equality
  • Grant Butt – Online Safety
  • TBC – Educational Visits Coordinator

When a concern is raised we will talk to the child in the first instance using the ‘Tell, Explain and Describe’ process. We will contact parents as appropriate. In some situations we will need to inform parents of our requirement to involve outside agencies such as First Response. First Response is operated by qualified social workers who are able to discuss any concerns and offer advice and initiate follow-up if necessary.

We work closely with many different external agencies who can offer support to families. We also liaise with the Bristol North safeguarding advisory team and our E-ACT System Leader, Mr Owen Walters, who advises on safeguarding and attendance.
