Parents should be aware that the school would take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of its students.

In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be the subject to significant harm, ill treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, staff have no alternative but to follow Sunderland Safeguarding Children Board (SSCB) Child Protection Procedures and inform Children's Services: Social Care of their concern.

The Designated Person for Safeguarding and Child Protection is Mrs T Ramshaw.  The Nominated Governor for Safeguarding is Mrs G Hossack.

Farringdon Community Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
