Bristol Brunel Academy's Inclusion and Safeguarding Lead is Colin Clements, who takes responsibility for Child Protection and Safeguarding issues. This includes:
- Advice and support to staff
- Staff Training so all staff can identify the four main categories of abuse and are aware of our responsibilities in regard to: FGM, Forced Marriage, the Prevent Agenda and Promoting British Values
- Linking with children’s services and working with other organisations
