St Gregory & St Patrick's

Our Safeguarding Ethos


At St Gregory and St Patrick’s School, the health, safety and wellbeing of all our children is of paramount importance to all the adults who work or volunteer here.  All our children have the right to protection; they have a right to be safe in our school.

All those working in education can contribute to the safeguarding and protection of the welfare of a child in need.  According to the DfE, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as:

  • protecting children from maltreatment;
  • preventing impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development;
  • ensuring children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and
  • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
