TADAA Safeguarding Statement
At TADAA we are committed to the highest standard of safeguarding practice and recognise the welfare of children who come into contact with our school as our highest priority.
We respond to all safeguarding concerns in a timely manner and work with external specialists to ensure all concerns are addressed effectively. We are keen to create a learning culture around safeguarding and strive to provide our members with resources to keep them up to date on good practice.
If you have any concerns about the safety of a child, young person or adult you should report your concerns to the safeguarding lead for TADAA.
If you report a concern to TADAA we will record the report and notify our Safeguarding Consultant, who will inform the appropriate safeguarding team / LADO for review and investigation.
TADAA does not have the authority to investigate allegations of abuse. Investigations are carried out by the LADO and / or police.
All concerns about safeguarding are taken very seriously by TADAA and concerns we receive will be shared with the appropriate authorities. If a concern is raised anonymously and we do not have a complainant we can contact or the details of the individual who has experienced harm it can be hard for TADAA or even the Local Authority / Police to take action. We would urge therefore that if you contact us with a safeguarding/ child protection concern where possible you share your details with us so we are able to address the issues you raise.
