Safeguarding Our Children

At St John’s, we ensure that our children are as safe as possible. All staff are trained to be aware of potential child protection issues. Governors too have appropriate training and induction so that they understand their roles and responsibilities and are confident about carrying them out.

Issues or concerns about the safety or welfare of children are listened to and taken seriously, and the appropriate agencies called, where necessary.


Any concerns about the safety and welfare of a child should be shared with one of the designated staff for child protection.
