At City Heights E-ACT Academy, safeguarding is an integral to everything we do. If you have any concerns about the safety or wellbeing of a child, please speak to a member of our safeguarding team (above). Our safeguarding expectations are lead by the guidance provided in the Keeping Children Safe in Education document. All staff have read and signed this agreement and are also kept up to date with any changes through regular briefings and CPD.
