Safeguarding at St Pius

SAFEGUARDING OFFICERS

St. Pius X Preparatory School and Oak House Nursery are fully committed to ensuring that the welfare of all children and young people is their main priority.  The School recognises that all staff and any adults who work alongside our children have a duty to take such steps as are reasonable to promote safe practice and to protect children from harm, abuse and exploitation.

OUR DESIGNATED SAFEGUARDING LEADS  ARE:

Mrs C. Davies  – Y6 Teacher, Compliance Officer, SLT   –  cdavies@st-piusx.lancs.sch.uk

Mrs. V. Sutton – Acting Nursery Manager, SLT   –  vsutton@st-piusx.lancs.sch.uk

OUR SAFEGUARDING GOVERNORS ARE:

Mr. P Clegg – Chair of Governors   –  paul@paulclegg.com

Mrs. A. Morris – EYFS Governor   –   usforrests@hotmail.com

Our business is to know everyone as an individual and to provide a secure and caring environment, so that every pupil can learn in safety.  We expect respect, good manners and fair play to be shown by everyone so that every pupil can develop his/her full potential and feel positive about him/herself as an individual. All pupils should care for and support each other.

 

At St Pius X Catholic Preparatory School and Oak House Nursery we believe it is important to work with parents and carers to help keep children safe. In this respect we try to keep up to date as much as possible with current issues and concerns. We use a variety of sources to do this, for example net-Aware.org.uk for on-line safety and the NSPCC for training and resources.
