St Patrick’s Catholic academy recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where all children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure the children receive effective support, protection and justice. Child protection forms part of the school’s safeguarding responsibilities. The school child protection and safeguarding policy is available here:
- Designated Teacher
Our designated Teacher for Children Looked After (CLA) or Children previously looked after is Mrs Slight. If a child is in care of the local authority or has been in the past Mrs Slight will be able to offer help and support. Please contact Mrs Slight via the office if you would like to discuss anything.
There are a number of agencies available to offer support and help. Please see the posters below for information or come into school to speak to a member of staff.
