Safeguarding Overview

Safeguarding at St Michaels

In our school our Christian vision shapes all that we do. We are very much a ‘team’ at St Michael’s; staff, pupils, parents and governors work closely together to ensure that every pupil has the opportunity to grow in body, mind and spirit; to flourish as a child of God and experience the joy and hope of ‘life in all its fullness’.

Safeguarding staff and pupils is therefore given the highest priority and the school aims to ensure that:

· Appropriate action is taken in a timely manner to safeguard and promote children’s welfare

· All staff are aware of their statutory responsibilities with respect to safeguarding

· Staff are properly trained in recognising and reporting safeguarding issues.


At St Michaels we have three Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL) who pupils, parents and staff can speak to regarding any safeguarding concerns.
