Safeguarding our students

At North Durham Academy safeguarding is paramount.

We endeavour to create and maintain a caring ethos where all children and adults feel safe, secure and valued.

We aim to work in partnership with you as parents/carers through transparency and honesty to ensure your child achieves their full potential and makes positive choices. In doing so we will promote and protect the safety and physical, emotional, social and mental health of all.

We work closely with Durham County Council & the procedures that we follow have been set by the Local Safeguarding Children Board of Durham. North Durham Academy's Child Protection Policy has been adopted in line with this. Please see our policies page for copies of our Safeguarding Policy and DfE Keeping Children Safe in Education Policy.
