Our Safeguarding Statement

THE STAR Multi Academy Trust Safeguarding Statement

The STAR Multi-Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding* and promoting the welfare and safety of children. The Trust expects all staff, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment.

*Protecting children from maltreatment. Preventing impairment of children's health or development. Ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care.

The Trust aims to provide a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment, which promotes the social, physical and moral development of the individual child, where every pupil/student in the Trust feels secure, well cared for, and able to reach their full potential.

Every member of staff has a collective recognition of the importance of providing an environment that helps children feel safe and respected, and a culture that encourages children to talk openly, and have the confidence they will be listened to.

The Trust understands and is committed to the vital contribution that all Trustees, Governors, staff, parents and students can make to safeguarding children. Every adult is expected to play their part in safeguarding our children and young people. Each school supports this through their offer of safeguarding and child protection training.

If you are concerned about the welfare of a pupil/student at any of our schools or wish to alert the Trust to any safeguarding concern, please contact the relevant Designated Safeguarding Lead in each school. Details can be found on each school website or in our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy on our Policies Page
