Where can I access help and support?

Hi, my name is Mrs Alex Robson and I am the Designated Safeguarding Lead at Kibworth Mead Academy.
My role is to ensure the welfare and safety of all children who attend Kibworth Mead Academy. We believe that students have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse; where staff are vigilant for signs of any student in distress and are confident about applying our safeguarding processes to avert and alleviate any such problems. Through regular training, all staff are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to safeguard students from all forms of abuse.
Sometimes, we may need to share information and work in partnership with other professionals when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare. If a member of staff is concerned about a child’s welfare, they will record their concern, and any observations or conversations, and report to one of the DSLs as soon as possible.

We are here to help, email us at [email protected]
