- The school prides itself on having an open and honest culture, and is committed to the highest possible standards of probity and accountability. The academy trust recognises that, from time to time, situations will arise where employees become aware of poor practice that can affect the well-being of the users of our services, our employees and the long-term reputation of the school and the wider academy trust. In line with that commitment, we encourage employees with serious concerns about any aspects of the school’s work to come forward and voice those concerns. Confidentiality will be maintained as far as is possible.
- No one who raises a genuine concern about poor practice will be put at risk of losing their job, or suffering any form of retribution as a result of doing so. Harassment or victimisation of Whistleblowers will not be tolerated. The school expects all managers to recognise their responsibilities in this matter, and to adopt and implement this policy and adhere to its procedures with regard to whistle blowing by any employee.
