‘The safety of children and young people is paramount. St. Mary’s School is fully committed to the rigorous implementation of safeguarding procedures and arrangements. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.’

Parents should know that the school will take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of its pupils. In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be suffering ill-treatment, neglect, personal or sexual abuse, staff will follow the Local Authority Child Protection Procedures.

Mr. W. Hitchcock (Headteacher) is the designated teacher for Child Protection. Mrs. J. Galloway (Chair of Governors) is the Safeguarding Governor. Both may be contacted via the school office.

All adults who work regularly with children require a school DBS. A Single Central Record for all staff and volunteers is maintained by the school.
