All our staff receive annual Safeguarding training and are well informed of the procedures for passing on concerns within the school to Mr Moore, Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) and Julie Atkinson, Safeguarding Officer.   
Our school adheres to the DfE's safeguarding documents Keeping Children Safe in Education 2020 and The Prevent Duty 2015
Sewell Park Academy is working in partnership with Norfolk Constabulary and Norfolk Children’s Services to identify and provide appropriate support to pupils who have experienced domestic violence in their household; this scheme is called Operation Encompass
 
In order to achieve this, Norfolk Multi-agency Safeguarding Hub will share police information of all domestic incidents where one of our pupils has been present, with the DSL. On receipt of any information, the DSL will decide on the appropriate support the child requires, this could be silent or overt. All information sharing and resulting actions will be undertaken in accordance with the ‘Norfolk Joint Agency Protocol for Domestic Abuse – Notifications to Schools’. We will record this information and store this information in accordance with the record keeping procedures outlined in our Safeguarding Policy.
