The South Wolverhamtpon & Bilston Academy

Safeguarding

At SWB Academy, we take seriously our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all students and endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice. Through our ethos and curriculum we promote a common sense of identity and support diversity showing our students how different communities can be united by common experiences and values. Strict adherence to the Safeguarding Policy is mandatory for all staff, governors, visitors and volunteers in the Academy and not subject to individual discretion.
