St John’s RC Junior School ensures all staff are familiar and updated with safeguarding policies and procedures.
We endeavour to maintain an ethos where children feel secure and are encouraged to talk and are listened to. We achieve this through our policies, procedures, pastoral care, circle time, relationships and partnerships with other agencies.
Through the curriculum, opportunities are created to equip children with the skills they need to stay safe from harm.
In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill treatment, neglect or abuse , staff have no alternative but to follow Safeguarding Procedures and inform Social services of their concerns.
