Saint Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, the Borough, is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. All London schools follow the London Safeguarding Children Board procedures. The school will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their child/ren. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Social Care and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with Child Protection procedures). The school will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents.
At Saint Joseph’s we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and take account of the information contained in the Department for Education documents ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ and ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education: Statutory Guidance for Schools and Colleges (DfE, updated annually)’. The safety and protection of children is of paramount importance to everyone in this school. Our child protection policy is available publicly on the school’s website.
