Safeguarding

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 January 2017, focussing on Safeguarding, Behaviour and Safety. They concluded that “Safeguarding is effective” and were very impressed with the provision we have in place:

"The evidence shared with us during the inspection showed that staff are vigilant. A culture of safeguarding is well promoted. Concerns about pupils’ welfare are appropriately recorded. Follow-up actions are swift and regularly reviewed by the designated team to ensure that they are effective and to determine the next steps to take. School staff work well with external agencies and local primary schools to ensure that all relevant information is made available. As a result, vulnerable pupils… get the support they need promptly. Where serious concerns arise, you and senior leaders make sure that appropriate action is taken…”

We were also pleased that the inspectors recognised the way we use the “positive impact of praise for improving pupils’ attitudes to learning” and that “the implications of behaviour that falls short of the standards expected are well understood.”

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.
