At St James’ Catholic Primary School, the health, safety and wellbeing of all our children is of paramount importance to all the adults who work or volunteer here.
All our children have the right to protection. They have a right to be safe in our school.
We are also committed to establishing a safe physical environment in which children can learn and develop both personally and academically and achieve success in the following as stated in the Children Act 2004:
Be healthy (physically, mentally and emotionally);
Stay Safe (protection from harm and neglect);
Enjoy and Achieve (via education, training and recreation);
Make a positive contribution to the school community and general society;
Achieve social and economic well-being.
The School regards Child Protection as an essential task of all its staff, governors and visitors/volunteers who come into school. We are committed to protecting and safeguarding pupils in school.
