FCAT Safeguarding Board

The FCAT Safeguarding Board is formed from governor and staff representatives from each of the FCAT Academies‚Äč ‚Äčas well as our two sponsor organisations, The Blackpool Sixth Form College and Hodgson Academy.

Its role is to provide assurance on safeguarding matters to each institution, monitor the effectiveness of safeguarding practices, develop joint initiatives to maintain the safety of children and young people and allow opportunities for sharing best practice (see Terms of Reference).

The board is led by an independent Chair with acknowledged experience and expertise in the field of safeguarding and meets 5 times in each academic year.
