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 (Assistant Headteacher and 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:
· protecting children from maltreatment
· preventing impairment of children’s health and development
· ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care and
· taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes
As a school, we 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.

If you have any safeguarding issues or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
