Safeguarding Information

Frome Vale takes safeguarding very seriously.  It is everybody’s responsibility to act if they feel that a child is not being cared for properly or being put at risk.  If you suspect that a child is at risk or being harmed please contact either Heather Marshall, the Designated Safeguarding Lead or Dr Saunders, Principal.   Any conversations will be dealt with sensitively and confidentially.

Children at Frome Vale Academy use the internet on a regular basis as part of their learning.    In school we have regular E-Safety activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online. When using the computer room children are continually reminded of how to keep themselves safe and get the best from the amazing resources of the internet. The CLF uses Impero to help us monitor the use of the internet and immediately alerts us to any inappropriate content.

The Prevent Strategy

Frome Vale takes its Prevent duty very seriously. The Prevent duty became law back in 2015. This is a duty on all schools and registered early years providers to have due regard to preventing people being drawn into terrorism. In order to protect children in our care, we must be alert to any reason for concern in the child’s life at home or elsewhere.
