Safeguarding and Child Protection
CHILD PROTECTION IS PARAMOUNT
The safeguarding and welfare of our pupils is the responsibility of all our staff in St. Mary’s
The rights of the child are enshrined in legislation as well as within our Christian ethos.
Our aim is to protect our pupils by ensuring that everyone who works in our school—teachers and non-teaching staff has clear guidance on safeguarding pupils, where abuse or neglect of a child is suspected.
In our caring environment the pupils must feel safe and supported. However, no promise of confidentiality can be given where abuse is alleged.
