This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Parents can feel confident that careful procedures are in place to ensure that all staff and volunteers are suitable to work with children.
Staff hope that parents and children will feel free to talk about any concerns or worries which may affect educational progress and that they will see the school as a safe place. Children will be taken seriously if they seek help from a member of staff.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic College recognises its legal duty and takes seriously its responsibilities to protect and safeguard the interests of all children. The school recognises that effective child protection work requires sound procedures, good inter-agency co-operation and a workforce that is competent and confident in responding to child protection situations.
Safeguarding is at the centre of all our school policies. Please refer to the school policies available on this website. The school also has many internal policies and our 'Safeguarding Procedures' covers such aspects as Child Protection, Safer Recruitment, Health and Safety, Anti-Bullying, Anti-Drugs and Behaviour.
