Keeping Children Safe

At Norwich Primary Academy we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our young people.

To achieve this we ensure the continuous development and improvement of robust safeguarding processes and procedures that promote a culture of safeguarding within our staff and volunteers.

We expect all our staff to undertake a full enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.

For further information on how we keep children safe, please see our safeguarding policy.
