Strand Primary Academy recognises it has a vital role to play in promoting the welfare and safety of children and young people. We have a statutory and moral duty to support all pupils and we want everyone to feel safe and enjoy their time with us.

The safeguarding of our pupils is given the highest priority – from the appointment of staff, governors, volunteers and contractors and the required checking procedures, to the curriculum itself and the academy’s activities both on and off site.

Strand Primary Academy teams up with other services and agencies to share information and work together to protect our pupils from harm and to help them to achieve. The welfare and safety of our pupils is of paramount importance.

All staff and adults involved in school life have a responsibility to safeguard our pupils. We train all our staff on Safeguarding issues, including ploicies and procedures. 

Debbie Norman is the Designated Safeguarding Lead, Lisa McCall (Head of Academy) and Katie Wheeler are Deputy Safeguarding Leads.

Should you have any safeguarding concerns about your own or any of our children at Strand Primary Academy, please make contact with either the school or any of the agencies which can be found on the  external contact page of this section.

What is Prevent?

The main aim of Prevent is to stop people from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.

The Prevent strategy:

  • Responds to the ideological challenge we face from terrorism and aspects of extremism, and the threat we face from those who promote these views;
  • Provides practical help to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support; and
  • Works with a wide range of sectors (including education, criminal justice, faith, charities, online and health) where there are risks of radicalisation that we need to deal with
