St John Bosco Teaching School Alliance


At St John Bosco Catholic Primary School we take the safety and wellbeing of the children in our school very seriously and we expect all staff, volunteers, governors and parents to do the same.

We have a Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy which is available on our Policies and Documents page. Also see a letter on our FGM reporting arrangements.

Other policies which affect the wellbeing of children are: Attendance; Behaviour; Anti-Bullying; Computer and Internet Use (E-safety) and our Child Welfare Policy which contains guidance on administration of medicines, off-site visits and procedures for missing or non-collected children.

We follow the Safer Recruitment Policy and the Department of Education guidance: ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’.

We also are part of Operation Encompass - a police and education early intervention safeguarding partnership that supports children exposed to domestic abuse.

We follow data protection and confidentiality policies.

We have a Health and Safety Policy for the practical protection of children and staff and regular walk rounds to inspect the site are conducted by the Site Manager, Governors and Leadership teams.

All staff receive extensive Child Protection (CP) training and Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) clearance appropriate to their position in school.
