At St Benedict’s Catholic College, we recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all our students. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.

If you have any concerns about a student in our care, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Information and important links

We have put together a leaflet for parents, carers, visitors & volunteers to give some information about how we meet our safeguarding and child protection responsibilities.

We have also included some tips and links to help you to keep your child safe.

You can access this and other materials to support both parents and students from the following links:
