protecting and supporting children and young people
In the White Hills Park Trust, we believe that a child or young person should never experience abuse of any kind. We have a responsibility to promote the welfare of all children and young people and to keep them safe. We are committed to practise in a way that protects them. The purpose of this document is to provide a summary of the aspects of safeguarding and child protection that are common across the Trust.
Each school in the Trust has an individual policy published on their website which is fully compliant with the Trust policy and which has been written with regard to the school’s individual context. The school policy should be read in conjunction with the Trust policy. The White Hills Park Trust requires each individual academy within the Trust to have safeguarding arrangements which meet statutory requirements, reflect the requirements of our Local Authority and comply with any additional expectations of good practice, determined by the Trust.
