Safeguarding and Child Protection

At Rye Hills Academy we take the safety of our students very seriously. To ensure the best outcomes for our students they need to feel safe and secure in school, at social times and at home.

We have a dedicated team for Safeguarding within the academy who receive training from the Local Children's Safeguarding Board. The team also regularly receives training from an education safeguarding consultant. A copy of the academy’s Child Protection policy is available to read on the website under documents and policies in the About Us section.

All academy staff are trained in the procedures for Safeguarding and they also receive regular updates throughout the year, as and when appropriate.

The students are also introduced to the Safeguarding team and photographs are posted in the academy so they know who to approach should they have any concerns.

If you have any concerns about the safety and welfare of a student please contact the school on 01642 484269 or email . Should you need to contact Children's Services the contact number is 01642 771500 and the out of office hours number is 08702 402994.
