Striving for





All adults in school have a responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

Safeguarding children is a priority for the academy. We have clear aims, policies and procedures to keep children safe.  Our Safeguarding Policy complies with the Rotherham Local Safeguarding Children Boards Child Protection Procedures.

The procedures place a statutory duty on Listerdale Junior Academy and adults in school to safeguard and promote the welfare of children with due consideration to equality.

Our systems are designed to: 

Prevent unsuitable people working with children and young people.

Promote safe practice and challenge poor and unsafe practice.

Identify instances in which there are grounds for concern about a child’s welfare and give adults in school the route for them to take the appropriate action.

The recruitment of staff to the academy is carried out with due regard to the statutory documentation from the DFE 'Keeping Children Safe in Education'.
