Our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy can be found under the 'policies and Key information' tab on the website. Paper copies of the policy is available from the school office on request.
At St Chad's we use the CPOMS software to monitor and log all incidents relating to safeguarding, child protection, well being and behaviour.
St Chad's Catholic Primary School: is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors and promoting a climate where children and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others. We aim to safeguard and promote the welfare of children by protecting them from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
