Safeguarding Statement

Safeguarding Children at St Cuthbert Mayne Catholic Primary School

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. 

This means that we have a Child Protection Policy and procedures in place.

All staff (including supply staff, volunteers and governors) must ensure that they are aware of these procedures.

Parents and carers are welcome to read the Policy on request.

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 pupils 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.
