Multi-agency approach

Granville Academy is committed to the safeguarding of all our students.  As such, we understand that multi-agency working is essential in safeguarding children. Our duty to protect the students in our care from significant harm, depends on our effective joint working with a range of external agencies, named below.  Early help is also provided through excellent pastoral support and the initiation of Early Help Assessments (to either The Pingle Academy or the Local Authority), where required.

Mr Declan Royston-Webb, is the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead.  The Academy benefits from a large Safeguarding Team who are all trained to Level 3 in safeguarding. This team consists of all members of the Academy Leadership Team and all Heads of Year. Any concerns about student safety should be referred to any of the members of staff below.
