Prevent Policy All Education providers have a duty to safeguard their students; Prevent is about safeguarding our students to keep them both safe and within the law. The Prevent Duty is not about preventing students from having political and religious views and concerns, but about supporting them to use those concerns or act on them in non-extremist ways. The aim of this strategy is to develop an awareness of Prevent in our Academies and recognise current practice which contributes to the Prevent agenda.

Pupil Privacy Notice The Thomas Alleyne Academy is a data controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act. We collect information from students and may receive information about students from other schools or academies and the Learning Records Service. 

Risk Management Policy This risk management policy (the policy) forms part of the Trust’s internal control and corporate governance arrangements.  The policy explains the underlying approach to risk management, documents the roles and responsibilities of the Trust, the Senior Postholders and other key parties.  It also outlines key aspects of the risk management process and identifies the main reporting procedures.  In addition, it describes the process the Trust will use to evaluate the effectiveness of the internal control procedures.
