Safeguarding Team

At The Birley Academy, we take safeguarding very seriously. When recruiting any member of staff, we adhere to the guidance laid down in keeping children safe in education (KCSIE). 

All adults who work on our site are required to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. This is to prevent any unsuitable people from working with Birley Academy pupils.  

All visitors are supervised when on site. 

If you are worried that a child has been harmed or is at risk of harm, you can contact the Sheffield Safeguarding Hub on 0114 273 4855 (24 hours) to speak to a social worker. If a child is in immediate danger, you should call 999 for a police response. Members of the public can discuss their concerns in confidence and, if necessary, anonymously.
