Safeguarding

OHC&AT is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people across its Academies and College Centres and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We ensure that consistent and effective safeguarding procedures and policies are in place to support pupils and staff at all of our Academies and College Centres and they can be found on each Academy and College website along with details of the Safeguarding Team for each institution.

The safeguarding page on your Academy websites is the best I have seen and I have seen many. Having both the contact details of your safeguarding team as well as MASH and LADO contact details is such a good idea it is surprising that it is not standard practice.  I am going to strongly suggest that more schools adopt your model and I will share it as good practice. Gavin Baker, Education Lead, MASH team, Harrow Council

This is a very exciting and pivotal moment in the lives of St Dominic’s, Brantridge and Grafham Grange schools.  Academy conversion under the sponsorship of OHC&AT will help secure their futures and, no doubt, lead to better outcomes for pupils and students, families and carers, staff and all stakeholders.   We are looking forward to a bright future as part of the OHC&AT family.

Ken Cowdery, Chair of Governors
