Safeguarding and Child Protection Policies

St John's C of E is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of its pupils. Each pupil’s welfare is of paramount importance and we are committed to upholding every child’s right to be safe.

Safeguarding encompasses all the things we do to protect our children. All schools have a legal duty to protect children and at St John's C of E, our duty of care is to our pupils above everything else. Safeguarding includes child protectionhealth and safetypoor attendance or late punctualityanti-bullying and preventing peer-on-peer abusepreventing the risk of radicalisatione-safetydisclosure and barring checks on staff and adults in the school and behaviour including ensuring no discrimination based on race, cultural background, sexual identity/orientation, disability, religion or gender

At St John's C of E, we will always take a considered and sensitive approach in order that we can support all of our pupils. Our Safeguarding Policy and Child Protection Policy states our school procedures regarding concerns raised about a child. This is in line with the Department for Education (DFE) guidance which is set out in Keeping Children Safe in Education (DfE September 2020) which incorporates a range of related responsibilities for schools and newer statutory duties introduced to protect children and young people.

Listed below is a suite of policies and procedures in place which outline the arrangements for the ongoing provision for children's safety. These can be found on our Policies Page:
