Everyone working at Allestree Woodlands School shares the prime objective to keep children and young people safe by:

• Providing a safe environment for children and young people to learn in

• Identifying children and young people who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm, and taking the appropriate action with the aim of making sure they are kept safe both at home and in school

• Receiving regular training to ensure they are aware of the most up to date practice in ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (The Department for Education guidance document)

All students receive regular inputs and information sessions, which enable them to be aware of keeping themselves safe, in school, out of school and online
