Safeguarding & Pastoral Care

Safeguarding Information for Students 

From a school perspective, the safeguarding of children means protecting you from harm or damage and forms part of a framework which keeps children under the age of 18 safe from exploitation of any kind.

Students tell us they feel safe at our school. However, we know some children may be especially vulnerable to abuse.  It is the responsibility of everyone working in or for King’s Leadership Academy Bolton to help keep children and young people safe.

How to Raise a Concern

Have you got a problem or concern? Need a hand? No one to turn to? Don’t know what to do?

If you have any problems at school, at home, with your family or friends or in the local community please don’t suffer in silence.

The ASPIRE Hub is your safe, confidential space to come and ask for help and support or to access materials that may help you with things you are experiencing or how you are feeling. A place to seek help or to speak to someone in confidence. Remember you can always speak to any of our staff face-to-face.  You can access this at school, at home, anytime, anywhere!
