At Da Vinci Academy, we take safeguarding very seriously. When recruiting any member of staff, we adhere to the guidance laid down in keeping children safe in education (KCSIE). 

All adults who work on our site are required to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. This is to prevent any unsuitable people from working with Da Vinci Academy pupils.  

All visitors are supervised when on site.
