Safeguarding is our number one priority at Atherstone Campus.  Please find links to our policies and procedures regarding safeguarding below if there is no link available you can request a copy of the policy from atherstonecampus@focus-school.com.   At Atherstone Campus we operate robust safeguarding procedures which are set out in our policies. These policies give information about what to do in the event of an allegation, concern or even a nagging doubt.

Atherstone Campus is committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all our students.
We will:

  • Create an atmosphere where all our students feel secure, valued and listened to
  • Recognise and respond quickly and effectively to any issues that are a cause for concern

At Atherstone Campus we look to keep all members of our community safe and healthy.  We encourage healthy eating through work in food and nutrition and by offering healthy options as part of our school lunches.  Our students are encouraged to be active at break times, in PE lessons and out of school.

Our site is secure and regularly audited for Health and Safety compliance alongside food hygiene (currently rated 5 star).  We encourage all members of our school community to stay safe online through regular e-safety updates.  We have taken a 360-e safety audit.

Our staff, trustees and volunteers receive regular safeguarding training and updates.  We have staff and trustees who are safer recruitment trained.  Our students have had information about how to stay safe.  We offer relevant first aid training to staff.
