The safety and wellbeing of all of our students and staff is of upmost importance at Haywood Academy. We fully comprehend our responsibility to promote the welfare of all children and young people and to keep them safe. We believe that ensuring our students feel safe is fundamental in enabling them to achieve their potential both socially and academically. We are committed to providing an environment where children can play, learn, develop and achieve, and where they are safeguarded, supported and are enabled to disclose if they are being harmed in some way.
