Kettering Science Academy believes that it is of the upmost importance to have good systems for protecting children and safeguarding their welfare. This means that all those who work with children in the Academy must be alert to possible concerns about every student and report these appropriately.

In order to protect our students at Kettering Science Academy, we aim to:

  • Create an atmosphere where all our students can feel secure, valued and listened to.
  • Recognise signs and symptoms of abuse.
  • Respond quickly and effectively to cases of suspected abuse.

Our Academy will support all students by:

  • Encouraging self-esteem and self-assertiveness whilst not condoning aggression or bullying.
  • Promoting a caring, safe and positive environment within the Academy.

Everyone working with our students should be aware that:

  • Their role is to listen and note carefully any observations which could indicate abuse.
  • They should not attempt to investigate once the initial concern is raised.
  • They should involve the Designated Senior Manager (DSM) immediately.
  • If the DSMs are not available, the Principal should be contacted.
  • A disclosure of abuse or harm can be made at anytime (lesson times, break times, after school etc.).
  • Before outside agencies are invited into the Academy to work with our students or to carry out work on the premises, staff are required to ensure that all relevant DBS checks and identification has been seen.

If you have a concern that a child is being harmed or at risk of harm or you receive a disclosure (intentionally or unintentionally) you must contact one the following:

  • Debbie Thomas - Safeguarding Co-ordinator
  • Tony Segalini - Vice Principal and designated safeguarding lead
  • Paul Davies - Principal and designationated safeguarding lead
  • Kirsty Farrar - Vice Principal and designated safeguarding lead

Call the Academy on 01536 532700.

Protect children from maltreatment;
