Aurora Academies Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We understand our responsibilities under the Children Act (1989 & 2004), The Education Act 2002 Sec175, Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022 and Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018.
As part of our approach to ensuring that robust and effective safeguarding systems are in place, we have a named Trust Manager for Safeguarding – Heidi Attwood. Her role includes coordinating safeguarding policy and procedure across the trust, providing training to ensure everyone keeps up to date with the latest guidance and development, support and advice for the Designated Safeguarding Leads, as well as being present in schools as much as possible to provide on-the-ground support.
