Safeguarding at Moor End Academy

At Moor End Academy we believe firmly that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. Our staff receive regular training to ensure they are updated with any changes in legislation and to ensure that we have the knowledge required to keep our students and staff safe. Our students also benefit from safeguarding training to ensure that they are confident in being able to keep themselves safe. We use CPoms as our recording system and all of our staff are trained in its use and are able to record concerns. An enhanced level is used by the pastoral team and key senior staff. 

We do, however, have a designated safeguarding team which currently consists of a deputy DSL, an early support worker, two members of the senior leadership team and a designated governor. The evidence of the impact and quality of safeguarding at the academy taken from stakeholder feedback is very strong. The team has excellent links with external agencies, works hard to maintain relationships and is well regarded locally; safeguarding is a real strength of the academy. 

You will be supported at the academy and be able to liaise with and be supported by other safeguarding leads within the Trust at termly meetings. We are a vibrant and hard-working team which is extremely passionate about what we do. Should you wish to join and lead this team you will need to have the capacity to work at both an operational and strategic level.

Judged Outstanding in every OFSTED category in 2012 we have a track record of excellence both in terms of student outcomes and professional development.

If you are interested by the prospect of this exciting opportunity, we would be delighted to hear from you.  

Closing date for applications: Monday 23rd September 2019
