Our mission is to create an outstanding Academy for our students who will become the leaders of tomorrow in every walk of life.

We will do what it takes to give every student the knowledge, skills, self belief and motivation to be successful in their learning.”

Evelyn Grace Academy, its staff and governors, are committed to safeguarding the welfare of our pupils and to providing a safe environment with robust systems to ensure the safety and healthy development of all our pupils, within the academy and on related school trips and other activities.

Everyone working in or for Evelyn Grace Academy shares the objective of helping to keep children and young people safe by contributing to:

  • Ensuring that Evelyn Grace Academy provides a safe environment in which children and young people can learn and develop, and
  • Identifying children and young people who are suffering or likely to suffer abuse or neglect, and taking appropriate action with the aim of making sure they are kept safe both at home and in school.

We recognise that some children may be especially vulnerable to abuse.  We are committed to doing our best to identify such children and to working with the appropriate authorities to support and safeguard them.  We are committed to providing all our pupils with a safe learning environment, free of bullying and other forms of harassment and to teaching pupils to act safely in and outside school and on the internet.

All adults working at Evelyn Grace Academy are aware of their responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of every pupil, both physical and emotional, inside and outside school. This involves ensuring that pupils are protected from significant physical or emotional harm and that there is a positive commitment to ensure the satisfactory development and growth of the individual.
