Safeguarding our students


Safeguarding legislation and government guidance says that safeguarding means:

  • Protecting children from maltreatment
  • Preventing impairment of children’s health or development
  • Ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • Taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes

Safeguarding includes child protection, health care plans, health and safety, site security, safety on school trips, anti-bullying work and so much more.

Bourne End Academy Child Protection Team consists of:

  • Mr Ryan Williams  (Headteacher)
  • Mrs Corinne Gill  (Deputy Headteacher & Designated Safeguarding Lead)
  • Mrs Sarah Hassell  (SENDCO & Additional Designated  Safeguarding Staff)
  • Mrs Julie Douglas (Student Support)
  • Mr Lee Bray (Year Leader for Year 10 & Year 11)
  • Miss Faye Witts (Year Leader for Year 8 & Year 9)
  • Mr Paul Kalyan (Year Leader for Year 7)
  • Mr Clayton Bannon (Assistant Headteacher with responsibility for Behaviour & Attendance)

All staff receive annual Child Protection and Safeguarding update training and are aware of the procedures for passing on concerns within school. If any members of the school or local community have concerns about the welfare of a child in the school, please pass them on to the School Child Protection Team.
