The New North Academy is committed to providing an environment where children can learn, play, develop and achieve in an environment where they feel safe. Safeguarding children is a vital part of our work and we strive to ensure children have positive relationships with adults and the confidence to speak up if they are worried or at risk of harm.
We are committed to ensuring that all staff are sensitive to issues of race, culture, gender and diversity, but these issues should never be a barrier to sharing and reporting concerns about children.
We are very keen to build strong relationships with parents so that we can work together to help keep your and our most precious commodity safe and happy while they are in school.
We have a team of dedicated staff who work as part of the safeguarding and inclusion team - all with a key responsibility to ensure children are safe and able to access their learning.
Our Designated Safeguarding & Families Leader is Rosie Winstanley. She is a full time member of staff and often on the playground at the start and end of the day should families wish to speak to her. Alternatively, she can be contacted via the main school office phone number, or on the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
We recognise the importance of working together to ensure our children are happy and therefore able to access their learning to achieve their best. We also know that any family can hit a time of challenge - and that sometimes this is unexpected. We have a wealth of resources available within this tab (also to the links on the left) where you can find further information about support available in school and across Islington.
If you need any help at all - please speak to a member of our staff team. We are here to help and support families and, when times are low, help to get you back on track.
