Safeguarding

Jubilee L.E.A.D. Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school.

There is a Safeguarding Team at Jubilee L.E.A.D. Academy. The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs McIntyre (Headteacher). The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads are Mrs Wass (Deputy Headteacher) and Mr Brooks (Assistant Headteacher). Our Designated Safeguarding Persons are Miss Swan (Inclusion Lead) and Mrs O’Connor (Attendance Officer). 

If you are ever concerned about the safety or wellbeing of a child in school, please come and speak to any member of the Safeguarding Team.

Further advice and help can be sought from:

NSPCC: If you have concerns about the safety of a child then contact the NSPCC helpline on 08000280285 or email help@nspcc.org.uk.

Children can talk to someone for advice and support at any time by contacting ChildLine on 0800 1111 or chatting to a counsellor online at www.childline.org.uk

For the best interests of all our children we use the following safeguarding measures: 

Cause for Concern

Teachers are asked to report any causes for concern to the School Safeguarding Team using an online system called myconcern. Any concerns will be shared with parents as early as possible as more often than not there are extremely reasonable explanations for the concern. Concerns may range from children being visibly upset to persistent lateness to children ‘disclosing’ concerns.

Attendance

All lateness and absences are recorded by the Attendance Officer, Mrs O’Connor. Reasons will be sought for all absence or lateness. Attendance is monitored through these systems and referrals to the Safeguarding Team can be made. Parents will always be informed of concerns around attendance at the earliest point. If attendance concerns continue the school will refer to the Education Welfare Officer.
