Create Safeguarding Statement
At Create Partnership Trust we put the safeguarding and wellbeing of the children first and expect all visitors and volunteers to do the same.
In our schools children are taught how to keep themselves safe, form positive relationships, and know who to speak to if they need help.
We work with our families and sometimes outside agencies to safeguard our pupils. Our staff have a duty of care to report any concerns, and always act in the best interests of the child.
For more information please see our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy on our Policies page.
Overall responsibility for Safeguarding within our MAT lies with the CEO, Pat Smart.
Mary Higgins is our designated Trustee for Safeguarding.
In an emergency where a child's safety is at immediate risk of significant harm contact West Midlands Police on 999
All Staff at our school have read the Keeping Children Safe in Education (Information for Schools and Colleges) document.

Right Help, Right Time
In line with Birmingham Safeguarding Children’s Board, Greet follows the refreshed threshold guidance “Right Help, Right Time” (RHRT). This framework has provided everyone at Greet with clear advice about what to do and how to respond if a child and their family need extra help. Our DSLs, have attended the required training suggested by the RHRT Multi-Agency so have embedded the RHRT guidance within the day to day practice of the school. Our staff regularly receive training so they know that the voice of the child is at the centre of their planning, decision making and service delivery.
For further information on the materials provided by RHRT, read the following documents:
Through the PSHE curriculum and our UNICEF Rights Respecting focus we empower our pupils to know how to keep safe, and also know how to speak out if their rights are being violated. Phase assemblies are one of the vehicles to deliver this aspect of the curriculum. Please see two recent assemblies:
