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.

If you have concerns regarding the safeguarding or welfare of any pupils, please contact Mrs Gili-Ross (Designated Safeguarding Lead), or Mrs Byrne (Back-up Designated Lead) or Mrs Gilfoyle (Back-up Designated Lead).

St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School participates in Operation Encompass. Following the report of an incident or domestic abuse, school will be advised that the child has been involved. Please see the school website for further details.
