Safeguarding Page Splitter


All employees, volunteers and governors of Nexus Multi Academy Trust place the safeguarding of children and young people in paramount importance. We understand our legal duties as per the Children Act (1989 & 2004); Education Act (2002) Section 175; Keeping Children Safe in Education; and Working Together.

As part of our approach to ensuring that strong, effective governance is in place, we have a named Director for Safeguarding: Mr Peter Castleton .

How do we assure safeguarding practice is robust across the Trust?

Our named Director for Safeguarding works through the Trust’s Standards Committee to ensure that Local Governing Body link governors for safeguarding are working effectively with each of our academies’ Designated Safeguarding Lead, to ensure all of our children and young people are safeguarded from harm and abuse, and that where concerns arise these are dealt with swiftly and professionally.

Annually, the named Director for Safeguarding will summarise all of the assurance activity undertaken in the preceding year, and determine if they feel suitably assured of the controls in place across the MAT.
