The Kings of Wessex Academy recognises that the safety and welfare
of children is paramount and that we have a responsibility to protect
children in all the Academy's activities. We take all reasonable steps
to ensure, through appropriate procedures and training, that all
students, irrespective of sex, age, disability, race, religion or
belief, sexual identity or social status, are protected from abuse.
We foster a culture of vigilance amongst staff, students, parents,
visitors and volunteers. We always listen to students and take their
concerns seriously. If you have any concerns, please do not ‘wait and
see’, contact us immediately.
