Saint Joseph's Junior School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children.
We treat safeguarding as a high priority. The health, safety and well-being of all our children, staff and visitors are of paramount importance.
Our children have the right to protection regardless of age, gender, race, culture or disability.
The Single Central Record (SCR) is maintained by the school to demonstrate that staff have undergone appropriate recruitment and police checks. The SCR is updated as and when additional staff or volunteers are recruited.
If any parent, staff member or volunteer has a concern about the welfare of a child they should immediately contact one of the designated safeguarding officers:
Mr M. Betts, Mr S. Nicklin or Mrs B. Jeeves
From 1st July
At St Joseph's Junior School, we build pupils' resilience to radicalisation by promoting the School Mission Statement, Gospel Values and fundamental British values.
The statutory guidance refers to the importance of Prevent awareness training to equip staff to identify pupils at risk of being drawn into terrorism. The Home Office has developed a core training product for this purpose - Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent (WRAP). All our staff have received WRAP information and have taken part in training sessions provided by a Safeguarding Consultant on what Prevent is about and how to deal with any concerns they may see inside or outside
