Safeguarding Information for Parents/Carers

Our staff are keen to work closely with students and families to provide help and support as early as possible if difficulties arise. We therefore work very closely with partner agencies, including Milton Keynes Council, Thames Valley Police, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub. Students also receive support from Brook, Compass, Service Six, Young Carers MK and our very own counsellor.

For more information on a range of topics relating to safeguarding children, including further information on how to contact our Designated Safeguarding Leads, please click here.

If you are concerned that a child is at imminent risk of harm, contact the police immediately.

Partnership Working with Thames Valley Police

The Academy part-funds a Police Community Support Officer, PCSO Nathan Ball, who provides a regular high visibility presence within the Academy. Nathan works hard to build positive relationships with students and provides valuable information and advice to support students and families to keep themselves safe.

Schools across Milton Keynes have been asked to make the letter found here available to parents and carers. The letter has been written by PC Sue Furber and PC Steve Horspool, who work within the Safer Schools Partnership.
