The Advisory Body and staff of The Ravensbourne School fully recognise the central responsibility it has to the safeguarding and protection of its students.
All members of The Advisory Body and staff (teaching and associate) including volunteers have an active part to play in protecting students from harm. The staff training and daily practice of The Ravensbourne School seeks to create a protective ethos where risk to the personal safety of students, particularly the risk of abuse, but also bullying and discrimination, is minimised. Equally, we work to promote a culture where students have the confidence to talk to a member of staff about any concerns in their life.
We aim to ensure that all safeguarding and welfare concerns or referrals are handled sensitively, professionally and in ways that support the specific needs of the individual student.
