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. Our Trust has an overarching child protection / safeguarding policy that details our approach to keeping children safe and each of our academies has developed their own individual policy from that in line with KCSIE 2018 requirements. Further, we recognise that safeguarding within early years requires particular arrangements and therefore we have developed a separate policy for this area of our practice.
In addition to practice in the classroom we ensure a “Safer Workforce“. The starts from how we recruit in line with Part Three of Keeping Children Safe in Education – Safer Recruitment. Find out more about how we recruit on our Vacancies page.
Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.

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.

Trade Union Facility Time
Tudhoe Learning Trust is obligated to report certain information about Trade Union Representatives and their activity within the Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017, which took effect from 1 April 2017. These regulations were laid following the enactment of the Trade Union Act 2016.
We are required to report and publish information about:
• the number of trade union representatives in your organisation
• the percentage of time spent on facility time
• the amount spent on facility time
• the percentage of paid facility time spent on paid trade union activities
Tudhoe Learning Trust works hard to maintain a supportive and inclusive working environment within which employees are able to be part of a Trade Union and to take part in its activities if they wish.
The Trust is not aware of any Trade Union Representatives within its employment and received no requests within the relevant period for Union Facility Time. Therefore, no time or money has been used for trade union facility or activity.
