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.

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

  • Mr Moody – Designated Safeguarding Lead and Single Point Of Contact
  • Mrs Shaile  Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
  • Mrs White  Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead

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 John Spring, who advises on safeguarding and attendance.

Our full and comprehensive policy for safeguarding can be requested from the academy office or accessed by clicking on the link below:
