'The arrangements for safeguarding are effective. All staff are vigilant and well trained. Leaders ensure that staff keep their knowledge up to date, including how to prevent pupils from radicalisation and extremism. The safeguarding lead has a very good understanding of any issues of particular concern and has ensured that staff have received additional training in these areas.'
