Ninestiles Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.
We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in this section. We work closely with Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board and actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
If you have any safeguarding concerns that relate to a Principal of a school in our Trust, it must be reported immediately to the Primary or Secondary Executive Principal.
Contact can be made through Kate Purchase, PA to CEO
PHONE: 0121 6931646
Please note that our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy is currently under review. An updated version will be published in September 2017.
