Our Lady and St. Joseph's Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This means we have a Child Protection Policy a copy of which is available from the school office and is also available from here on this website. In addition we also have a policy for safeguarding children during the COVID-19 outbreak available here.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have a reason to believe such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
If you have a safeguarding issue (i.e. you suspect a child is a victim of abuse or neglect by an adult and need to report it) you need to see:
Mrs McLaughlin (Headteacher)
Mrs Evans (Head of School)
or Mrs Janvier ( Deputy Headteacher)
Mr Janvier (Chair of Governors) via the main offices.
