Nethergate Academy


Safeguarding is everyone’s business and it is among the most important things we do. If our pupils do not feel safe, they will not learn. 

The name of the academy’s Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Sarah Heery. They can be contacted via the academy office. 

We also have the following staff who are involved in the leadership of safeguarding: 

Tracey Ydlibi - Principal, Shelly Wood - Head of upper school, Jayne Balsom - Head of lower school, Sharon Muddeman - Assistant head.
