Education

Safeguarding

The safety and well-being of the children in our care is our absolute priority.  We take matters pertaining to safeguarding very seriously without exception.  We expect all staff, visitors, contractors, governors, directors and volunteers to share this view.

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.

Disqualification by Association

Completed annually for all staff employed in the care of children aged 5 and under during normal school hours and aged 8 and under in an out of ours setting.  Headteachers must complete the declaration.  Any positive declarations must be referred to the Trust HR Manager and Executive Headteacher for further advice and an application to be made to Ofsted for a waiver.  A record of declarations should be reflected on the schools SCR and retained in overview form in the schools safeguarding file.

The Trust oversees consistent and compliant safeguarding practice across all of its schools to ensure that all children are equally and adequately safeguarded.

People

At Tudhoe Learning Trust we are a tolerant and inclusive environment where opportunity exists for all.  We recognise and value the contribution of our people.  We continually seek to develop and improve our processes, practice and procedures to ensure continuous growth and progression.  Here is a selection of our people related policies.  More information and alternative formats can be obtained by contacting our HR Department at office@tudhoelearningtrust.co.uk

Equality & Diversity

Tudhoe Learning Trust is proud to be a diverse and equitable working and learning environment creating opportunity for all.  We have a range of policies and procedures that underpin our culture of practice that ensures no individual or group is disadvantaged whether they work for us, learn with us or visit us.

Organisations employing more than 250 people are required by law to publish their gender pay gap.  Gender pay gap is the difference between average male hourly rate of pay and average female hourly rates of pay shown as a percentage.  We have a formal pay structure for teaching and non-teaching staff.  We do not pay bonuses or benefits in kind.  We are confident that men and women are paid fairly and equally for equivalent work.  For more information about our gender pay gap please contact Kimberley Ivory at office@tudhoelearningtrust.co.uk or view our report of 31 March 2017 here Trust Gender Pay Gap Report 2017-2018

Governance

Data Protection

Data Protection laws are changing on 25 May 2018.  We are currently reviewing all of our data handling processes to ensure data privacy and security of our pupils, parents and staff information in line with General Data Protection Regulation.  For more information please contact us at office@tudhoelearningtrust.co.uk
