Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.


At Harris Academy St John's Wood the health, safety and wellbeing of every child is our top priority.  We expect all staff, Governors, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment to safeguarding our students.  

  • Safeguarding legislation and Government Guidance says that safeguarding means:
  • Protecting children and learners from maltreatment  
  • Preventing impairment of children’s and learners’ health or development  
  • Ensuring that children and learners are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care  
  • Undertaking that role so as to enable those children and learners to have optimum life chances and to enter adulthood successfully.

Safeguarding at Harris Academy St John's Wood is a common thread that runs through all that we do, including child protection, health care plans, site security, safety in lessons, in the playground and on school trips, behaviour for learning, anti bullying and so much more.  

We listen to our students and take seriously what they tell us.  Our staff are trained in child protection and our students know who they can talk to if they have a concern.  We have a team of trained Designated Officers and a Designated Safeguarding Lead.  Our Safeguarding Team consists of:

Designated Safeguarding Lead Miss Celeste Fay
Deputy Safeguarding Lead Ms Emma Stevens
Designated LAC and Child Protection Officer Miss Celeste Fay
Child Protection Officer

Ms Aline Savalle
Mr Cedric Lakole
Ms Mabel Chaces

Ms Emily Antrobus

The online world is becoming vaster with young people using social media sites and the internet, to explore opportunities for learning and creativity. However, while the internet is a great resource, as always, there are risks and dangers that every student should be aware of to help protect themselves and be safe online.  The Academy teaches e-safety via our PSHE curriculum, but you may also find the below resources useful.

You'll also find a wealth of additional information on the Think You Know website which was created by the police for parents of children at secondary school. It contains useful information about:

  • what children are doing online
  • how to talk to children about what they are doing online
  • what risks your child might face
  • what tools are there to help them stay safe.
