At St Philip's, we take the safeguarding of your children very seriously. Our safeguarding lead is Mrs Hogan (Headteacher.) In her absence, any issues can be raised and dealt with by Miss Cahill (Deputy Headteacher/Yr 3 class teacher) or Miss Johnson (Reception teacher.)
What does safeguarding actually mean?
Safeguarding is a term which relates to the action taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm. Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility, and is defined as:
As a school, we will always act in our pupil's best interests and ensure we take all reasonable steps to prevent harm to them, Having safeguards in place within the school not only protects and promotes the welfare of children, but also enhances the confidence of staff, volunteers, governors and parents/carers.
