As an educational institution we have a responsibility for safeguarding the young people in our care, and it is our duty to prevent and protect those young people from maltreatment or harm.

Everyone who comes into contact with young people has a role to play in preventing the impairment of their health or development, ensuring they grow and develop in an environment which is safe and provides them with the best possible chance of success.

Blackpool Aspire Academy is a member of the FCAT Safeguarding Board, a forum of governor and staff representatives from each of the FCAT academies. For more information please see

Below you will find weblinks, documents and information about safeguarding so parents, and their children, can be as informed as possible.
