Safeguarding Council

We are the Safeguarding Council at

The Berkeley Academy


Welcome to our Webpage!



We are the school representatives who assist Mr Birchenough (our Safeguarding Lead) and Miss Brown (our Head Teacher) in all aspects of keeping the school community safe. We think that our job is very important as we are a vital part of everyday life in the school.


We help to make sure that everything in the school is secure and safe for all of us.  We are responsible for updating the information signs on the school noticeboards and ensuring that children can see posters which may help us all think about being kind to others - or if we are worried about being able to stay safe online.  Another really important thing that we do is to help the staff find any safety hazards around the site - especially during the building works that we have at the moment. We spend time with Miss Brown discussing how we can make our school better - and most importantly, SAFER for all!


Our latest job has been to help Mrs Bateman spread the Anti-bullying message during Anti-bullying week. 'It's okay to be different' was celebrated by everyone as we asked the whole school to join in our Odd socks day! Everyone agreed that we all different - and that's fine by us!
