Safeguarding Statement

At Livingstone Academy, we are committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors and promoting a climate where children and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns they may have about their own safety or the wellbeing of others. The Academy will work with other agencies in its quest to safeguard students.

The Academy is committed to the vital contribution that all stakeholders make to safeguarding children. We aim to ensure that child protection concerns and referrals are handled sensitively, professionally and in ways that support the specific needs of the individual child.

By providing a caring, safe and stimulating environment, which promotes the development of all our students, we aim to foster an atmosphere of trust, respect and security. Thereby enabling every child to reach their potential.

Our Vision

  • Everyone succeeds and achieves their potential regardless of any personal characteristics. Background does NOT determine outcomes.
  • We are all equal all of the time and treat people with the respect they deserve. We are not afraid to make mistakes as we see this as part of our learning journey.
  • We aim for our students to leave our academy prepared with both the knowledge and skills for their future; allowing them to become successful and caring citizens, whilst upholding the values that they have learnt through their educational journey with us.
  • We are stronger as a team than a group of individuals and can change anything collectively that we put our mind to, whilst also being able to critically reflect on our actions.
  • We aim to provide a rounded education that ensures our students grow holistically through developing resilience, tolerance and humanity.

Our safeguarding expectations are very clear. Every person connected with the Academy has a personal responsibility for the highest standards of safeguarding of our students. It does not matter how you are connected to the Academy, as part of our community we all have a responsibility for safeguarding our students. The following groups all have equal responsibility for ensuring the highest standards of safeguarding:

  1. All Academy staff.
  2. All Academy students.
  3. All Academy parents/carers.
  4. All external agencies that engage with the Academy and young people.
  5. All members of our local community.
