Safeguarding at St. Joseph’s

All schools have a statutory duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. At St. Joseph’s we take this responsibility very seriously.

If you have any concerns about the safety of a child or young person whilst visiting our school, please speak to a member of staff who will be able to help you. If you are unsure of what to do or who to speak to, please contact the member of staff on reception.

Keeping Yourself and Others safe at St. Joseph’s
