In Autumn 2023, we commissioned the NSPCC to inspect our safeguarding processes and the wider culture at the school. By culture, we mean looking beyond the paperwork and flow diagrams, finding out how our community members genuinely feel whilst here.

We did this because we are aware that PRUs / APs can have a reputation as being hostile environments and we wanted a second view on that – we also wanted an honest view because, as much as we are confident we have a strong approach, we believe inviting honest second opinions helps us leave no stone unturned.
