St Charles’ Catholic Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website, and which can be accessed below, along with guidance from the Department for Education on other safeguarding matters.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs R Dean (headteacher). Our deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs M Walker (Deputy headteacher).

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) covers a wide range of resources including; web-based and mobile learning. It is also important to recognise the constant and fast paced development of ICT within our society as a whole. At St Charles’ Catholic Primary, we use ICT throughout all our subjects and encourage children to do the same at home. It is of vital importance that parents and children are aware of how to  use the Internet safely.

At St Charles’ Catholic Primary we understand the responsibility to educate our pupils in e-Safety issues; teaching them the appropriate behaviours and critical thinking to enable them to remain both safe and legal when using the internet and related technologies, in and beyond the environment of the classroom.
