Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment.

Safeguarding

Safeguarding Policy 2021

The safety and well-being of the children at St Joseph's Catholic Primary School is of utmost importance. Our Safeguarding Lead in school is Mrs Gili-Ross and the Deputy Safeguarding Leads are Mrs Byrne and Mrs Gilfoyle. These staff members have undertaken Designated Safeguarding Lead Training. Our Safeguarding Governor is Mr Gerard Lawrenson.

All other members of the school staff are regularly trained and updated in safeguarding and child protection. All disclosures from children or disclosures from adults are taken seriously, recorded and investigated thoroughly in line with Lancashire County Council's Safeguarding and Children Board guidelines. We work with all relevant agencies to reduce risk and promote the welfare of children.

Operation Encompass

 

At St Joseph’s we are committed to keeping our children safe and are please to make known our  involvement with Operation Encompass.

 

Until recently there were no procedures for reporting Domestic Abuse incidents to schools which means that our children are left without the support and nurture when they need it most. Operation Encompass has been created to address this so that by 9.10am on the next school day the school’s Key Adult will be informed that the child or young person has been involved, heard or witnessed a domestic incident. This knowledge, given to schools through Operation Encompass, allows the provision of immediate early intervention through silent or overt support, dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child.

 

At St Joseph’s the Key Adult is Mrs Gili-Ross ( Headteacher). Should you require any further information regarding Operation Encompass do not hesitate to contact Mrs Gili-Ross, Mrs Byrne or Mrs Gilifoyle.
