St Aidan’s Church of England High School takes safeguarding very seriously. All employees at the school have an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check carried out as part of our pre-employment checks. Checks are also undertaken to verify identity, address, qualifications required for the post, right to work in the UK and previous employment history.

All employees at St Aidan’s have repeat DBS checks at least every 5 years and wear an identity badge with a photograph that identifies them.

All visitors are required to wear a visitor’s badge after identifying themselves at reception and signing into the premises.

The school has a Child Protection Policy which operates within Local Authority Safeguarding Children Board and Government parameters. It is available on the policy documents page of the school website or from Mrs G Soper (Deputy Head and School Child Protection Coordinator). Please contact Mrs Soper if you require any further information about our safeguarding policy.
