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.
If you have any safeguarding concerns you would like to raise with the school please contact us on 0121 675 0622

Right Help, Right Time
In line with Birmingham Safeguarding Children’s Board, Conway follows the refreshed threshold guidance “Right Help Right Time” (RHRT). This framework has provided everyone at Conway 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:
