We all have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
If you have any concerns about a student at this setting please share this information with us straight away. Issues such as appearance, hygiene, behaviour, can be shared with teaching or support staff.
Do not worry about reporting small matters – we would rather you tell us than miss a worrying situation.
If you think that a student or an adult who cares for them has been or might be harmed; please talk to a member of our trained safeguarding team immediately .
You can ask any member of staff to find them and speak to you about a confidential and urgent matter.
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.

Operation Encompass is a police and education early information sharing partnership enabling schools to offer immediate support for children and young people experiencing domestic abuse.
Information is shared by the police with a school's trained Key Adult (DSL) prior to the start of the next school day after officers have attended a domestic abuse incident thus enabling appropriate support to be given, dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child.
Operation Encompass aims to mitigate this harm by enabling immediate support, making a child's day better and giving them a better tomorrow.
Operation Encompass believes that children are victims of domestic abuse in their own right and should be acknowledged as such.
