Summerhill takes the safety of the pupils, teachers and parents very seriously. It is everybody’s responsibility to act if they feel that a child is not being cared for properly or is being put at risk. If you suspect that a child is at risk or being harmed please contact either Ms Dunbar, the Designated Safe Guarding Lead or Mrs Rees or Mr Munro. Any conversations will be dealt with sensitively and confidentially.
To ensure that our children are kept safe in school we complete full DBS checks on all adults working/volunteering in school and regularly review our safeguarding procedures.

The Internet has become an everyday part of our lives. We use it daily as a tool to improve teaching and learning, to access information from around the world, talk to friends and help with our work. It is an immense environment offering a wealth of resources that benefit us all.
However, it is essential that we all learn how to behave responsibly online both at home and at school. At Summerhill Academy we take this matter very seriously following government advice on best practice.
