Safeguarding is EVERYONE'S responsibility at St Helen's. 

We take Safeguarding very seriously at St Helen's. 
It is essential that staff and governors do everything we can in order to ensure the safety and welfare of all children including working closely with other agencies.  Staff are trained to be alert to children's needs and concerns and are aware of their responsibilities and procedures for recording and reporting.  
Here are a few of the measures we take in order to ensure that our children are kept safe from harm...
  • risk assessments - on the building, activities and pupils
  • recruitment checks on all staff including volunteers
  • annual inspections carried out by external consultants
  • staff induction programmes
  • regular staff training
  • policies on all aspects of safeguarding including online-safety
Suggested e-safety website links for parents:  

The internet can be a very useful tool, however, it is very important to stay safe online. You can learn all about online safety (and what to do if you feel worried) on the 'Think u Know' website. It has lots of useful information and resources for children and parents. Have a look at their       website

The school's Safeguarding Policy is available below.
