Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm. The safety and welfare of every child is of paramount importance to us all at NAPA and we work hard to provide a safe environment for our young people. All of our team undergo enhanced DBS checks and are required to attend regular child protection training. The majority of our teaching and administrative staff are qualified first aiders.
A copy of NAPA’s Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy can be found HERE.
Our nominated child protection leads are:
Carl Wheatley Katie Wright
Please speak to Carl or Katie if you have any concerns around safeguarding or child protection.
Behaviour expectations and Anti-Bullying
Our Student Code of Conduct is issued to all new and returning students upon registration each year and is outlined in full within the Student Handbook.
It details how we support and guide each student to achieve success and enjoy their time at NAPA. In brief, students and their parents/carers agree to treat everyone and NAPA property with respect, behave and speak in a way which does not offend others, and not to distract or disrupt the education of others. Students are not permitted to use their mobile phones whilst in class.
Any form of bullying should be reported and will be taken seriously. It may also potentially lead to exclusion from the Academy.
1) In accordance with NAPA’s operational and Safeguarding policies, we request any parent/carer wishing to raise any issue or concern or complaint to send details in writing to the CEO of NAPA directly and as soon as possible. All matters raised will be acknowledged, considered and responded to. Where appropriate a provisional enquiry may be made before responding.
