Safety and Security

Personal Safety

We are fully aware of our campers safety and security at Woodlands. We have an instinctive understanding of the importance of not placing children in dangerous or insecure situations.


All staff working with our campers are Garda Vetted and also trained in our internal Child Safeguarding Policy.

Health & Safety Risk Assessment

Health & Safety Risk Assessments, for all aspects of our Academy are updated regularly and are available for inspection when visiting us. We offer 24 hour supervision, so you can rest assured that your children are constantly monitored. In addition, fire drills are carried out at the Academy so the children are prepared in case of an emergency.

First Aid

Our staff is fully trained in Occupational First Aid by Safety Ireland.

Child Protection

At Woodlands Academy, the welfare of the child is the first and paramount consideration to us. 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.

24 Hour Supervision

Students are always supervised. Night supervision includes active supervision until 1:00am. Should any student need attention beyond this time, two night supervisors are always available to be woken up and are accessible to students at all times. Only female staff live at the Academy with the students. These are Consecrated Women of Regnum Christi and Deans of Students. For students’ safety, security alarms are activated during the night and the Academy is equipped with CCTV cameras.
