Big Education is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Each school has a policy statement and a set of procedures which make clear how the school effectively implements their Local Authority Child Protection (Safeguarding) policy within their local context. The documents that schools develop at the local level meet relevant regulatory requirements, including for an Early Years phase (EYFS) where applicable.
Big Education Trust staff will comply with each of the school’s policies when working at that school site.
All recruitment will follow statutory guidelines to ensure safe recruitment.
