How do we know Safeguarding is Effective at Our Lady & St Patrick's School?
School can support families experiencing difficulties through a system called Early Help (see leaflet for further information), where professionals support children and their families through regular meetings. Speak to Mrs Goodfellow if your family could be supported in this way.

Here are some of our key policies around safeguarding children. Please see 'Policies' section under 'Key Information' for more policies and information

'KIDSAFE UK' - Helping Children to Stay Safe

We are a Kidsafe Registered School.

Throughout the year, children take part regularly in sessions to learn about how to keep themselves safe and well.

These sessions are carefully tailored to meet the needs of each year group across school.

The children engage really well in these sessions, which are delivered by two of our specially trained staff - and they all love meeting KC, the Kidsafe Monkey!!
