Safeguarding and Child Protection
St Francis Xavier Catholic Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
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 on our website.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our students are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
Our school's safeguarding team:
Mr A Dickinson - Designated Safeguarding Lead
Mr D Simmons - Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
Mrs A Bullock - Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
Mrs S Edge - Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
