Child Protection Statement of Commitment

‘Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as protecting children from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.’ (DfE 2021)

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our pupils. The Governing Body recognises this and their duty as set out in in Section 175 / 157 of the Education Act 2002 and as schools within our Catholic Archdiocese. We recognise that:

  • the welfare of children is paramount in all the work we do and in all the decisions we take all children, regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation have an equal right to protection from all types of harm or abuse.
  • some children are additionally vulnerable because of the impact of previous experiences, their level of dependency, communication needs or other issues.
  • working in partnership with children, young people, their parents, carers and other agencies is essential in promoting young people’s welfare.

Our schools and staff form part of the wider safeguarding system for children. Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility. As such, the Child Protection Policy applies to all within our school communities and all policies produced.

“We need to see each child as a gift to be welcomed, cherished and protected.” – Pope Francis
