Safeguarding at SASM
At St Andrew’s and St Mark’s CofE Junior School, we believe in providing a caring and supportive Christian environment. Children are at the centre of everything we do. Safeguarding is at the heart of our care for pupils and is an integral part of school life.
Keeping children safe - quick links
St Andrew’s and St Mark’s has a duty to keep children safe. This includes how we protect children from experiencing harm and how we should respond when we suspect or confirm that a child is being harmed.
We are committed to providing an environment in which children feel welcomed, safe, valued and respected. Adults in our school know that keeping children safe is everybody’s responsibility and that all children, regardless of age, gender, culture, language, race, ability, sexual identity, religion or lack of religion have equal rights to protection and opportunities.
Please see our comprehensive safeguarding policy below, which explains how we ensure the safety of our pupils:
