Congratulations Hartsdown Academy for achieving the ‘Safe at School’ Award!

18 January 2016

Hartsdown Academy have again achieved the Salus ‘Safe at School’ Award, evidencing their commitment to creating a safe, inclusive and accepting school environment where pupil and staff well-being is paramount and bullying is not tolerated.

The accreditation of the high-quality anti-bullying programme lasts for three years and Hartsdown’s recognition has again been renewed for a further period. The programme is aligned with Department for Education guidance, equality legislation and Ofsted requirements.

Jill Allen, Anti-Bullying and E-safety Co-ordinator for Salus, presented Hartsdown principal Andy Somers with the latest award.

Mr Somers said: “We work very hard to ensure that Hartsdown is a welcoming and safe place for all our students which is reflected in respect and tolerance for each other, and good behaviour. These are important parts of our whole-school ethos.

“We are proud to have our accreditation renewed for a further three years as it reinforces our already vigilant and strong practice in dealing with any form of bullying, which is something that occurs in schools worldwide.”
