Early Help

Early Help is the extra support your family can get if you need it. It may be that you want to prevent a problem, or change things for your family before the problem becomes more serious.

It is not a specific service or team, it’s an approach that brings together people from a range of services and teams who will work together with your whole family to help improve the situation for everyone.

It can offer support to families from pre-birth to adolescents with all sorts of issues from parenting, employment and school attendance to emotional wellbeing or anti-social behaviour.

OUR SAFEGUARDING TEAM

We recognise that all staff and governors have a full and active part to play in protecting our students from harm, and that the welfare of the children is our paramount concern. All staff believe that our school should provide a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment that promotes the social, physical and moral development of the individual child.

 

Our Academy procedures for safeguarding children are in line with Plymouth Local Authority and Plymouth City Council’s Child Protection Procedures, “Working Together to Safeguard Children.”

 

ASAP has a Designated Person for child protection who has undertaken Basic Child Protection training delivered through the Plymouth Area Child Protection Committee, and who undertakes other training as recommended by the LA every two years. There are also members of staff who will act in the Designated Person’s absence who have also received basic multi-agency training, and who will have been briefed in the role. All members of staff, volunteers and governors know how to respond to a student who discloses abuse, and the procedure to be followed by appropriately sharing a concern of possible abuse or a disclosure of abuse.

 

ASAP will seek to ensure the suitability of adults working with children on the Academy site at any time. This includes making community users organising activities for children aware of and understanding the need for compliance with the Academy’s child protection guidelines and procedures and our selection and recruitment policy includes all appropriate checks on staff suitability including Enhanced Criminal Records Bureau checks.

 

The Academy’s responsibilities in regard to child protection procedures are published in the Academy’s Child Protection Policy (available on request and on our policies page) and are referred to in our home Academy agreement.

 

The safeguarding policy can be found on the policies page.  Revised ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ Statutory Guidance
