Safeguarding is the responsibility of every single person at RBA. All staff are highly accountable for keeping all children safe. However, some staff play a key role.

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.

Safeguarding Curriculum

Safeguarding is of top priority at RBA, and we want to teach each and every one of our students how to stay safe in and outside of school. We place high significance and importance in ensuring that opportunities are identified in the taught curriculum and wider curriculum for students to learn about safeguarding. We are sensitive in our teaching and recognise that some more sensitive subjects need to be taught at an age appropriate level, or by specialist services or 1:1 level where a more urgent need arises.
