Safeguarding Statement for Parents and Carers TG Safeguarding

Tudor Grange Academy Worcester ensures that all children learn in a safe, caring and enriching environment. Children are taught and offered support to keep themselves safe, to develop positive and healthy relationships and to avoid situations where they might be at risk, including being exploited by others.

The academy has a statutory responsibility to share any concerns it might have about a child in need of protection with other agencies and in particular police, health and children’s services. Schools are not able to investigate concerns but have a legal duty to refer them. In most instances, the academy will be able to inform the parents/carer of its need to make a referral.

However, sometimes the school is advised by Children’s Social Care or police that the parent/carer cannot be informed whilst they investigate the matter. We understand the anxiety parents/carers understandably feel when they are not told about any concerns from the outset. The academy follows legislation that aims to act in the interests of the child.

If you have any questions about this information, please speak to a member of staff.
