Proud to be an FMAT Academy

Academy policies and procedures


Our first priority is your child’s welfare and therefore there may be occasions when our concern about your child means that we have to consult other agencies even before we contact you.

The procedures we follow have been laid down by the Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board. If you want to know more about this procedure, please speak to the Designated Senior Lead or the deputy: 

DSL: Mrs Jackie Mace

If staff become aware of, or have a need to become involved in, situations where a child may be at risk of hurting themselves or others, or if the behaviour of a child seriously disrupts good order in the academy or causes damage to property, staff may need to take steps to intervene physically. In such circumstances staff will follow the academy’s policy for dealing with such situations. Any parent/carer wishing to have further information on this matter or wish to view this policy may do so on request.

All policies relating to safeguarding may be found on the Academy Policies page here:
