Our first priority is that ALL students feel safe and happy in our school.

We have an extensive Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy & Procedure which you can view by using the link below:
Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy & Procedure

At Thornhill Community Academy, A SHARE Academy we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we require all staff, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment. We acknowledge that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and all of our staff are trained to be vigilant and aware of the signs and indicators of abuse. We work with students to develop trusting, consistent and professional relationships. We promote early help processes and aim to identify any difficulties or concerns early in order to act preventatively. We will always provide support and advice for families and parents/carers, whilst acting in the best interests of the student.

Safeguarding also includes ensuring we follow safe working practices and provide a secure learning environment for our students and staff.

If you have any concerns about the safety of your child or any child at the school please do not hesitate to contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Claire Keen – or our team of Deputy Designated Safeguarding Officers at school.


Students are aware of staff within the academy who they can talk to regarding any safeguarding concerns.  Staff with safeguarding responsibility can be found in the attachment below.
