We are all ready for the Mock General Election at RBA.


At RBA, we are committed to safeguarding.  Our designated safeguarding lead is Mr B Martin, Assistant Headteacher.  Please contact him in the first instance if you have any immediate concerns about the safety or well-being of students in the school, or don’t know who else to contact.

Deputy designated safeguarding leads are:

For all other student concerns, the Form Tutor is usually the first point of contact, and then the Head of Year.

Ofsted Recognition of our work on Safeguarding

Ofsted visited RBA in June 2019; they reported the arrangements for safeguarding continue to be “effective” and recognised the safe and caring culture created within the school:

“Pupils feel safe and are confident in the staff that look after them. Adults promote caring, secure relationships with pupils, including the large number of pupils who join the school mid-way through the year.” The school has “created a culture where pupils feel free to express worries or concerns. Pupils are taught how to stay safe, both online and in the wider world” and “they feel safe and are confident to speak to adults in the school if they are worried or have a problem.”

We are also pleased that from speaking with inspectors “Pupils say that bullying is not a problem, as people appreciate and value the things that make them different” and “staff deal with any problems quickly and effectively.” It was also recognised that “An array of services help pupils when they are facing additional problems or a crisis or have concerns. School nursing teams, the school counsellor and the school’s new well-being coordinator ensure that pupils get timely and well-coordinated support and guidance.”

Visitors to RBA

When visiting RBA, you will be asked to sign in at Main Reception, and given a numbered visitor badge. You will also be asked to read our 'Visitors to RBA' leaflet, which outlines our expectations and important information you may need during your visit, including what to do if you have any concerns, fire evacuation procedures and a map of the site.
