All adults who work at our academy have a responsibility to read and understand all safeguarding policies;


All adults are expected to read the DfE guidance Keeping Children Safe in Education – September 2016. 

This should be read alongside the statutory guidance Working together to Safeguard Children and departmental advice What to do if you are worried a child is being abused – Advice for Practitioners.  All adults at Bristnall Hall are made aware of the NSPCC Whistleblowing Advice Line on 0800 028 0285. This service provides support to employees needing to raise concerns about how their organisation has handled a child protection concern.



Prevent Strategy

Prevent is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism or extremist causes.  The strategy covers all types of terrorism and extremism.  All schools have a duty to safeguard children from radicalisation and extremism.  Bristnall Hall Academy is committed to protecting our young people from extremist and violent views, and to teaching them values such as tolerance and mutual respect.  We provide a safe environment for pupils to discuss any issue so they better understand how to protect themselves.


Here is our parent leaflet on this topic: Parent Leaflet

All adults at Bristnall Hall receive Prevent Strategy training.

Here is a link to the Department of Education’s paper on The Prevent Duty –
