Safeguarding

Safeguarding 

Safeguarding is a priority at St Christopher’s. Every member of staff has a responsibility for the safety of our children.

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children, their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding them and promoting their welfare. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.

Security

Our school gates are locked once the children are in, until the end of the school day.

Visitors to the school day can only enter via the school office. Visitors are usually people we know well, or an appointment has been made. All visitors to school are asked to  show ID, they sign in and out at the office and wear a visitors badge for the duration of their visit.

If you have any concerns re: Safeguarding, please contact our Designated Safeguarding Leads:

Mrs Waters – Headteacher

Mrs Eccles – Deputy headteacher

We always strive to provide a safe environment for our children.
