Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Safeguarding

The Academy is committed to the vital contribution all Governors and staff can make to safeguarding children. We will strive to make sure that every student in the Academy feels secure, well cared for, and able to reach their full potential.

We will ensure all our own staff, other professionals, parents/carers and students work together to know the rules about keeping children safe. They will understand the importance of following procedures and listening to each other, especially when there are concerns about safety.

Esafety is a responsibility of all staff, pupils and parents. If you need advice or have concerns click here to access the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Website.

The Academy will work hard to reduce all the kinds of harm that children can suffer, including abuse, bullying, discrimination and avoidable injuries. If you have any concerns at all about the safety or welfare of a child please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

The Academy Lead Designated Member of Staff for Safeguarding is Catherine Irving, Family Worker.


The Deputy Lead Designated Members of Staff for Safeguarding are Melody Berthoud, (Vice-Principal), Lynne Dando (Executive Principal) and Enoka Abey (SENDCo).

Extremism and Radicalisation 

In June 2014, the Prime Minister emphasised the important role that British values can play in education. Further, how well a school promotes such values is an aspect of Ofsted’s inspection process.

As well as actively promoting British values, the opposite also applies: we would actively challenge pupils, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British values, including ‘extremist’ views.

The British values we espouse are not unique to Britain. We acknowledge that they differ in no way from the values of the many countries and the cultural backgrounds represented by families at Harris Primary Academy Orpington.

We have a clear strategy to tackling extremism and acting early to address any issues of radicalisation. We are aware that some pupils and families may be vulnerable to radicalisation and follow the government's channel guidance (Attached as a key document to this page) as well as having a consistent approach to the teaching of values, which we term British Values, through our taught and extra-curricular curriculum offer. This is detailed in the British Values Policy which can also be found as an attached document on this page.

We work closely to ensure our Prevent approach identifies any pupils that may be in danger of radicalisation and to make referrals to the Bromley MASH service as with any other safeguarding concerns.
