The Department of Education, through Working Together to Safeguard Children (DfE 2018) and Keeping Children Safe in Education DfE 2018), places a duty on organisations to safeguard and promote the well-being of children and young people. At Madni Academy we are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our students and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment; these can be viewed in the Policies section of our website.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such action would be contrary to the child's welfare.
We support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mrs Shakera Mirza (Headteacher) and our Deputy DSL is Mrs Fatima Khan (Early Years Practitioner)
Our safeguarding Policy is attached below.
