Ash Grove Academy is passionate about and committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.  We expect all staff and visitors to share this commitment.  We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school.  All concerns are passed to trained Designated Safeguarding Officers in school in compliance with the sharing of information guidance.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Judith Ceuppens.  She is supported by the Designated Deputy Safeguarding Lead Katy Ghorbanian, and the Other Deputy Designated Officers, Amanda Thompson and Sally Veale.  Our nominated governor for Safeguarding and Child Protection is Katie Siddall.
If you have any serious concerns about your child or any other pupil at Ash Grove Academy, please do not hesitate to contact one of our Designated Safeguarding Officers in school who will know who to contact for the best advice and help and are experienced in using the appropriate degree of confidentiality.  You can find our contact details via our Contact Us page, or alternatively you can send our Designated Safeguarding Officers an email at
