Safeguarding at Willow Green

At Willow Green Academy, the welfare of all our pupils is of great importance to us and we hope that parents are confident about their children’s health and safety whilst in our school.

We will always try to share any concerns we have with parents.  However, there are times when we are legally obliged to share our concerns with other agencies, without first speaking to parents, or without the consent of parents. 

The safety and protection of our pupils is our most important concern and we wish to reassure you that any sharing of information is done with the children’s best interest at heart. 

Our safeguarding policies can be found in the ‘Statutory Information’ section of our website.

Extremism and Radicalisation

Here at Willow Green Academy we are taking this extremely seriously and all staff have received training to aid them identify the signs of potential radicalisation.

As a parent you may be worried about how extremism and radicalisation might affect your child and so we have made some information available which you can find below. 

Please read the leaflet below for further information for you as parents.
