Shine, Celebrate and Grow!


St John’s Catholic Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.


We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website.


Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.


We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism. 


Our Child Protection Lead is: Mrs Angela Bennett (Headteacher).

Our Deputy Child Protection Leads are: Mrs Natalie Serjeant; Mrs Catharine Young; Mrs Catrin Geeson

Our Safeguarding Governor is:  Patrick Weaver


All staff and volunteers (academic year 2019/20) are expected to:


Sign to confirm that they have read all of the above documents. 


What to do if you are concerned about a child

If you have any concerns about the safety or well-being of a child it is YOUR DUTY to report your concerns to: Mrs Bennett or Mrs  Serjeant.  

Or out of school hours if you have a concern about a child or young person, please call the Children and Families Assessment and Intervention Team on 01225 396312 or 01225 396313.
