Safeguarding and Child Protection (first contact for welfare concerns):
Here at St Catherine’s College we passionately believe in the right of every child to be able to lead a life where they can grow up to be healthy and thrive. This aim is what drives the work we do and is a part of every decision that is made about our students. We work hard to teach children how to keep themselves safe through our E-Safety, PSHE programmes and work within the curriculum, and will strive to teach them the skills and knowledge to develop a sense of responsibility and care for each other.
At St Catherine’s College we work alongside our students, their families and other agencies to help them see that, no matter how difficult their situation may be, we can help them to get through and will support them and their families every step of the way.
We have a robust Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy in line with recent guidance and warmly invite parents to read the policy and contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead if they have any concerns or suggestions.
