Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Central Office


















The Academy is committed to the vital contribution all Governors and staff can make to safeguarding children. We will strive to make sure that every student in the Academy feels secure, well cared for, and able to reach their full potential.

We will ensure all our own staff, other professionals, parents/carers and students work together to know the rules about keeping children safe. They will understand the importance of following procedures and listening to each other, especially when there are concerns about safety.

The Academy will work hard to reduce all the kinds of harm that children can suffer, including abuse, bullying, discrimination and avoidable injuries. If you have any concerns at all about the safety or welfare of a child please do not hesitate to contact us.

Each Faculty Co-ordinator is trained to a high level in safeguarding and child protection. You may wish to contact them in the first instance or contact Mrs Edwards (Designated Child Protection Officer) directly. If you can not reach a member of staff please call our main reception where a message will be passed on immediately or alternatively please use our SHARP System by clicking on the logo below:

If you are looking for advice on how to keep your child safe online, or you wish to report an inappropriate online incident involving your child, you may access the National Crime Agency’s CEOP website through the link below:


Please find details of an Internet Safety app forwarded to us by Sutton Police:




It is an app that parents can download that allows them to control their child’s internet usage - essentially they can set times that their child can access wifi/4g on their phones, and they can do it remotely so the child has no control over it.


Operation Encompass


Operation Encompass is the implementation of key partnerships working between the Metropolitan Police (MPS), the local authority and Designated Safeguarding Lead’s (DSL), working in schools. Mrs Edwards is the DSL at Harris Academy Morden. Operation Encompass went live in Merton on 14th June 2019.


The attached letter has been circulated to all parents to inform them of this initiative.


Working together to safeguard children, The MPS will notify specially briefed Encompass DSL’s within schools about any domestic abuse incident where the child or young person has been present, to allow the school to take appropriate steps to support their pupil during what could be an emotionally difficult day.


In May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force and along with the it, the Data Protection Act 2018 which superseded the previous version. Reference to this new legislation is included in this version of Keeping Children Safe in Education along with new guidance set out in Information Sharing (2018). Both these documents stress that neither GDPR or the Data Protection Act 2018 prevents or limits the sharing of information to keep children safe. Paragraph 77 sets out the “Special Category Personal Data,” which allows sharing information even without consent, in some circumstances.


Operation-Encompass Letter


This is excellent and specifically caters for students that are self-harming. Please share this with students when you come across students self-harming.

The same people also developed one app called clear fear for students with anxiety.
