Safeguarding Statement

Northern Star Academies Trust believes that a child (defined by law as anyone up to 18 yrs old) should never experience abuse of any kind. We have a responsibility to promote the welfare and health of all children, and to keep them safe and free from harm. Safeguarding is a range of activities undertaken by everyone to hold the fundamental right of all stakeholders to feel safe within our community.
