Safeguarding Information

I am a child, and I don’t feel safe.

At the Academy:

  1. Tell a trusted adult. This could be your Tutor, Pastoral Team or a teacher.
  2. Ask to speak to a member of the Academy Safeguarding Team

At home or in the community:

  1. Call and speak to an adult at the Academy on 0117 976 3000.
  2. Email [email protected] (please note this email account is monitored during term-time school hours)
  3. Phone Childline on 0800 11 11 any time day or night. They are happy to speak to you about any worries. The call is free.

If you feel you or another child is in immediate danger, please call 999.
