Yardleys is committed to keeping our students safe, both in
school and the wider community. As a caring school, we take both a preventative
and responsive approach to Safeguarding. We work hard to pre-empt safeguarding
concerns by assessing risk and educating young people of matters related to
safeguarding. We also respond thoughtfully, empathetically and quickly to
safeguarding issues as they arise taking a student centred approach in all cases.
As part of our
safeguarding arrangements, we have a two-way information sharing agreement in
place with West Midlands Police. The agreement is compliant with Crime &
Disorder Act 1998 and Data Protection Act 1998 and focuses on preventing young
people from becoming involved or further involved in crime and anti-social
behaviour as a victim or offender. If you have any queries about the
partnership policy, please contact Mr. Basra on 0121 4646821.
All our staff are reminded of the very clear and high expectations placed upon them as professionals working with young people. Our Child Protection Policy is available on the School Policies page of our website.
