SAFEGUARDING CONCERN. Contact the Safeguarding (Child Protection) Team directly:

One of the main aims of Woodkirk Academy is to provide a stable and secure environment where students can flourish.  To achieve this aim we need to create an ethos where good discipline and respect for others is what we expect and where students accept that good discipline is an expression of what society sees as acceptable behaviour.

Co-operation and trust between parents, students and the Academy is the best method of dealing with any problems which may arise; coupled with a pastoral care system where early intervention is the key to success.
