Goffs achieves Platinum Award for Excellence in Safeguarding

Posted on: 29th November 2022

Following a Safeguarding Inspection, we are happy to announce that we have received the Platinum Award for Safeguarding. Please see below some comments from the report:

The academy has robust and effective safeguarding arrangements in place. Leaders are focused on pupils’ safety and staff have an excellent understanding of safeguarding. As a result, pupils feel safe, well cared for and suitably supervised.”

“Staff are trained in safeguarding as appropriate, and fortnightly safeguarding debriefings ensure that staff have remarkably high levels of understanding and what safeguarding entails through the provision of close focus on different areas of safeguarding”

“All pupils stated that they felt safe in the academy because staff cared about their safety, and they knew who to speak to if they had a problem. Mainly, they would talk to a member of the safeguarding team or their class tutor, or another ‘trusted adult’. They said that bullying was rare and if it happened, staff were effective in dealing with these incidents. They all felt that behaviour issues were dealt with promptly and effectively. The girls said that any sexualised behaviour or inappropriate language use, were taken seriously by staff and addressed.”
