Safeguarding

We at St Mary’s RC High School believe that it is always unacceptable for a child to experience abuse of any kind.

We recognise our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children.

We will provide staff and volunteers with guidance to follow when they suspect a child may be experiencing abuse or at risk of harm.

We will work co-operatively with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents / carers first – unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.

 

The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Adam Hawkesford-Johnson

The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Angela Leslie

The Governor with responsibility for Safeguarding is Mr Peter Fawcett

 

We will review our policy and procedures on an annual basis.
