St Benedict's is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment.  

  • The school is committed to your welfare, protection and safekeeping
  • You have a fundamental right to be protected from harm and from all forms of neglect, abuse and exploitation and should feel safe and secure at school
  • It is an aim of the school always to act in your best interests and we will encourage the fullest possible involvement and consultation

If you have any concerns about your own safety and welfare or the safety of another pupil you can raise those issues with any member of staff. Your concerns will be taken seriously, you will be encouraged to talk and you will be listened to.
