Carlinghow Academy is committed to providing a secure and supportive environment in which children can develop and grow into mature and responsible people. Safeguarding children is a central part of our whole academy approach to ensure that children are protected from abuse and neglect and that every child reaches their full potential. This is achieved by:

  • Creating an environment whereby high standards of work, effort and behaviour are expected and rewarded with praise and encouragement.
  • Providing a curriculum, which will help all children to develop their full potential.
  • Providing appropriate training and learning opportunities to sustain the personal and professional development of all staff, governors and volunteers.
  • Developing an academy community where everyone feels valued and secure, shows understanding of others, respects diversity and promotes equality of opportunity and encourages a sense of pride in our academy.
  • Working in partnership with parents by offering support, information and advice about their child’s learning and development.
