Safeguarding

The safety and wellbeing of our students and staff is of upmost importance at St Aloysius’ College. We fully comprehend our responsibility to promote the welfare of all children and young people and to keep them safe. We believe that ensuring our students feel safe is fundamental in enabling them to achieve their potential. We are committed to providing an environment where children can play, learn, develop and achieve, and where they are safeguarded, supported and are enabled to disclose if they are being harmed in some way.

All staff are provided with comprehensive safeguarding policies and are trained to ensure St Aloysius’ College is a safe environment. Both teaching and non-teaching staff are aware of their responsibilities to our students, and the procedures involved in protecting and nurturing individuals. All safeguarding policies are regularly reviewed and staff receive regular training refreshers to ensure the best practices and procedures are in place.

We also have a wealth of supplementary policies and guidance which give more detailed information, advice and procedures surrounding specific safeguarding issues to aid staff, parents/carers and students in approaching and acting upon concerns. These can be viewed within the Policies section, direct link here.
