Feeling at Home in Woodlands
Child Protection: at Woodlands Academy, the welfare of the child is the first and paramount consideration. All children have a fundamental right to be respected, nurtured, cared for and protected. Therefore, all those who collaborate in Woodlands Academy, are properly trained in accordance with the Child Safeguarding Policy of the Legion of Christ. This policy follows the standards and guidance document by the Catholic Church in Ireland, which is based both in Gospel values and civil legislation. Furthermore, Woodlands Academy works with Praesidium Inc., a leading company in abuse risk management, based in the United States of America.
24 Hour Supervision:
a) Students are always supervised.
b) Night Supervision. Should any student need attention, two night supervisors are always available for each group, to be woken up at any time and accessible for the student’s needs.
c) Only female staff lives in the Academy with the girls. These are members of Regnum Christi CoWorkers/Deans of Students.
d) For students’ safety the Academy is equipped with CCTV cameras, 24 hours a day.
During July 2015, The National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland (NBSCCCI) will conduct a review of our safeguarding practice.
