At St Benedict’s Catholic Primary School we are fully committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.

We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school.

All concerns are passed through the members of staff who are trained as designated child protection officers in school.

We are committed to inspiring, challenging and safeguarding our children, enabling them to become:


  • Successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve.
  • Confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.
  • Responsible citizens who make a positive contribution, both socially and economically to society.
