Safeguarding

 

St. Matthew’s is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

We believe that pupils have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse; where staff are vigilant for signs of any pupil in distress and are confident about applying our safeguarding processes to avert and alleviate any such problems.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website.

·  The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Miss C. Richardson (Head of School)

· The Deputy Safeguarding Lead is Miss L Barr (Deputy Head of School)

·  The Safeguarding Governor is Mrs L Ryan
