At West Walsall E-ACT Academy we all have a duty of care to keep all our students safe, we have an open door policy so students can access support and guidance at all times. We network with outside agencies and professionals who can offer your child additional & specialised support if needed. It is important students are aware of “keeping safe” and that they know who to go to if they need to speak to someone in confidence.

Our Safeguarding policy is available on our website and you can access this by clicking on our policies tab, you can also contact the academy to share any safeguarding concerns you have.
