Star Academy and Academy Transformation Trust prioritise the safeguarding of our pupils.

Our children have the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, race, culture or disability. They have a right to be safe in our school.

The staff at Star Academy have a duty to report any concerns that they may have that any child may be at risk from significant harm or may be suffering significant harm, particularly as a consequence of possible abuse.
