Manor Academy recognises its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of its students and ensures that relevant and effective safeguarding practices exist and are actively promoted within the Academy. Where concerns are raised about students’ safety or well-being we will do our best to help and support them, but there might be situations where we may need to pass these concerns onto the local Children’s Services Department and appropriate external agencies for consideration and support. 

We are all governed by the DFE document: Keeping children safe in education – Statutory guidance for schools and colleges.
This document contains information on what schools and colleges should do and sets out the legal duties with which schools and colleges must comply in order to keep children safe. 

If you are concerned about the safeguarding of any students within the academy you should report this to: 

Mr Hudson – Senior Designated Lead Safeguarding –

The other trained safeguarding officers within the academy are: 

Mrs K Kerry (Head Teacher)
Mrs L Meredith (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead)
Mrs N Richards (Deputy Safeguarding Officer)
Miss E Rawson (Associate Assistant Headteacher)
Mr M Cooper (Assistant Headteacher)
Miss C Evans (Alternative Provision Coordinator)

If you have an allegation against any member of staff, this should be reported directly to Mrs Kerry (
