St Anne's Catholic Primary School ensures children learn in a safe, caring and enriching environment. Children are taught how to keep themselves safe, to develop positive and healthy relationships, how to avoid situations where they might be at risk including exploitation.
All our staff are committed to maintaining a safe environment and promoting the health, safety and wellbeing of all. All staff receive a safeguarding induction when they start working in school and receive regular updates and annual refresher training in safeguarding.
The school has a statutory responsibility to share any concerns it might have about a child in need of protection with other agencies and in particular police, health and children’s services.
As a Safeguarding school we work closely with other agencies including the Community Police, School Health, local Authority Health and Safety Advisors, Careline and the Early Years Hubs.
St Anne's aim is to work in partnership to offer the best early support for our children and families, and ensure the children’s safety and wellbeing is a priority.
Both our taught and wider curriculum provide opportunities to teach children about the privileges of British society, including free speech and democracy, as well as British law which protects the rights of all our citizens to be safe, listened to and to be treated equally with respect.
The school always follows legislation that aims to act in the interests of the child.
