Safeguarding

St Anthony’s Girls’ Catholic Academy fully recognises that keeping our students safe and promoting their wellbeing is of utmost importance. Everyone who comes into contact with children has a role to play in safeguarding. The curriculum provides opportunities for students to become equipped with the skills they need to keep themselves safe and lead healthy lives. Our PHSE programme, assemblies and tutorial programme enables students to develop the attitudes needed to lead responsible lives. We encourage our students to talk to an adult if they are worried or in difficulty, and all staff are trained in safeguarding.
