We have the children’s welfare at the heart of all our actions and should a member of staff have cause to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill-treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, staff will inform the Designated Person within the school and established Child Protection Procedures will be followed.

The Local Management Board (Governing Body) have established stringent and far reaching safeguarding procedures when recruiting and appointing staff. All new members of staff and regular volunteers are subject to enhanced Criminal Record Bureau checks.

All staff have received, read and agreed to comply with the procedures set out in St Bernadette’s Safeguarding and Child Protection policy.  They have also all read and understand the DfE’s statutory safeguarding guidance on Keeping children Safe in Education.

Our child Protection and safeguarding policies can be found on our policies page
