At The Meadows, Safeguarding is the golden thread of our school practice. We advocate high expectations and at The Meadows our practice is exemplary. We work positively with families to ensure the best outcomes for all, especially the children.

At The Meadows Primary Academy, it is everyone’s responsibility to keep children safe and create a culture of vigilance. The Pastoral Team make sure that everyone has someone to go to if they see or hear anything that concerns them.
