Safeguarding

This page is designed to be a source of information about safeguarding for the community, parents and students alike - to help inform and educate everyone in our school community. 

Helpful resources for parents on issues such as e-safety, mental health, self-harm and drugs can be found on our Parent Advice Hub page.

On this page you'll find a list of our designated safeguarding officers as well as information about E-safety and our Safer Schools Partnership. Our Child Safeguarding Policy can be downloaded at the bottom on this page.


Mr InghamDesignated Safeguarding Lead - Harry Ingham

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Harry Ingham, who can be contacted on 0208 299 5300 or emailed at h.ingham@harrisdulwichboys.org.uk.

Please contact Mr Ingham to report safeguarding concerns, discuss worries or discover more about how the Academy safeguards students, parents/carers, and staff.


Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors and promoting a climate where children and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others.

The academy is committed to the vital contribution of all governors, staff and support staff make to safeguarding children a priority. We aim to ensure that child protection concerns and referrals are handled sensitively, professionally and in ways that support the specific needs of the individual child.

Through providing a caring, safe and stimulating environment which promotes the social, physical and moral development of all our students, we aim to foster an atmosphere of trust, respect and security.


Safeguarding posters

The safeguarding poster pictured below is displayed in every classroom and key places around the academy. This is to ensure that every stakeholder connected to the academy can approach key staff (and any member of staff) to share any safeguarding concerns. Our staff also have out of hours safeguarding cards on which are contact details of the senior safeguarding team and external agencies. This is for use if issues come to light outside of normal school hours.

Our vision

Our vision is very clear and has safeguarding at its CORE.

Everyone succeeds and achieves their potential regardless of any personal characteristics. Background does NOT determine outcomes.

We are all equal all of the time and treat people with the respect they deserve. We are not afraid to make mistakes as we see this as part of our learning journey.

We aim for our students to leave our academy with the ‘Master Key’ that will unlock any door for them in the future. This will allow them to become successful and caring citizens, whilst upholding the values that they have learnt through their educational journey with us.

 We are stronger as a team than a group of individuals and can change anything collectively that we put our mind to, whilst also being able to critically reflect on our actions

We aim to provide a rounded education that ensures our students grow holistically through developing resilience, tolerance and humanity.


The academy philosophy, vision and expectation on safeguarding is very clear. Every person connected with the academy has a personal responsibility for the highest standards of safeguarding of our students. It doesn’t matter how you are connected to the academy, as part of our community we all have a responsibility for safeguarding our students. The following groups all have equal responsibility for ensuring the highest standards of safeguarding:

1.     All academy staff

2.     All academy students

3.     All academy parents/carers

4.     All external agencies that engage with the academy and young people

5.     All members of our local community


Remote learning and safeguarding

Harris Boys’ Academy, East Dulwich and the Prevent Duty

The academy has a designated, accredited Prevent Duty Lead. The Prevent duty has two specific strategic objectives to safeguard our students against radicalisation, extremism and any actions or beliefs that are contrary to British Values and our academy ethos.

1.      Respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat we face from those who promote it.

2.      Prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure that they are given appropriate advice and support.

HBAED opposes all form of extremism. We define ‘extremism’ as vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.


Harris Boys’ Academy, East Dulwich and “Channel”

The academy will work closely with the counter-terrorism referral programme “Channel”.  Channel is a multi-agency approach to identify and provide support to individuals who are at risk of being drawn into terrorism.

The programme uses a multi-agency approach to protect vulnerable people by:

  • identifying individuals at risk
  • assessing the nature and extent of that risk                           
  • developing the most appropriate support plan for the individuals concerned.

"Where do you feel safe?" - contextualised safeguarding

Young people encounter risk and safety in locations outside of the home. These experiences are crucial in shaping how they move through their local neighbourhood and how to keep themselves safe. We carry out a safety mapping exercise which students complete with their form groups and form tutor so we can learn and understand about where they feel safe or at risk.


Visiting speakers to the academy

Harris Boys’ Academy, East Dulwich utilises the expertise of a wide range of guest speakers, lecturers, authors and visitors to enrich and augment the curriculum and learning opportunities of our students. 

However, the safeguarding of our students is at the forefront of everything we do.  To ensure that guests and visitors’ information is in line with our own values and ethos the academy completes a rigorous process of checks.  By completing these checks, the academy is confident that we are protecting our students from extremist views such as radicalisation and homophobia while enjoying the wide benefits of external speakers.

All visitors to the academy are expected to follow the Visitors' Code of Conduct which can be accessed from the link at the bottom of this page


Radicalisation and extremism

The academy believes and actively supports the view that all students should be protected from radicalisation and extremism. Read more about how we approach Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Education, including radicalisation and extremism. Download a parents' guide to extremism and radicalisation.
