Safeguarding and Child Protection
St John Fisher 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.
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 parents / carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
Our designated safeguarding leads are Mr Kenny (Head Of School) Mr Kendal (Executive Headteacher) and Mrs O' Regan (KS2 Lead) and Mrs Alston (Inclusion Lead).
Our safeguarding governor is Mrs Maria Farres, who works across our Trust.
Hard copies of all policies can be made avaliable from the school office or downloaded via our school website.

Online Safety / CEOP
At St John Fisher School, we take online safety extremely seriously. We believe that it is the right of all children to feel safe and secure when using technology.
We teach children to use the Internet and other technologies safely, and we show them how to behave in an appropriate manner. They know what to do if they feel uncomfortable with anything they see or hear either online or through other technology such as mobile phones.
It is important to encourage a healthy lifestyle with regard to the use of technology, and teach children about the risks of exposure to inappropriate content or too much time in front of a screen.
We show children how to keep their data and security safe, and we teach them to be critical of the things they see online.
How can CEOP help?
The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) helps children stay safe online. Has someone acted inappropriately towards you online, or to a child or young person you know? It may be sexual chat, being asked to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or someone being insistent on meeting up. You can report it to CEOP by clicking the CEOP.
