Safeguarding

C.I.T - Community Inclusive Trust. Where learning comes first

If you have any safeguarding issues, please contact our Trust Safeguarding Lead:
Seriena Hodder on 07860 504032 or email seriena.hodder@ganf-cit.co.uk

At C.I.T Academies we treat safeguarding our students as a priority. We believe all employees have a responsibility to be vigilant and listen to students if they are worried about any safeguarding issues.

Within C.I.T every member of staff receives Safeguarding Training and all staff are made aware of the Designated Safeguarding Officer within their school.

Each School will ensure:
• That all staff know how to access the Safeguarding Policy
• That all staff are clear on how to follow procedures
• That all staff receive annual Safeguarding Training
• That safe recruitment practices, which provide for appropriate checks, are in place and adhered to
• The designated person liaises regularly with the Executive Head of the Fellowship.

If you have any safeguarding issues, in the first instance please contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead for the relevant Academy (details of which can be found on each Academies website), or if it is a Trust wide concern please contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead, Seriena Hodder on 07860 504032.
