Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people is everyone's business.....
Here at St Peter's Catholic Voluntary Academy, we take safeguarding and the welfare of our pupils extremely seriously.
Below are the links to our policies and the local authority guidance that we follow with regard to keeping children safe and protecting children from missing education.
The designated safeguarding leads (DSL) for safeguarding in this school are Mrs Helen White, Mrs J Coghlan and Mr. Paul Phillips.
Our Family Support Worker, Mr Paul Phillips, makes links with parents, pupils, staff members and external agencies in order to address any safeguarding concerns.
All staff are aware of the procedures in place for reporting any safeguarding issues and concerns.
Staff have all received safeguarding training, and do so every 3 years (as a statutory requirement) and have also received PREVENT training (31st August 2016).
Termly safeguarding updates are shared with all staff.
