St Ambrose Catholic Primary School

Grow through the love of Jesus


At our school safeguarding encompasses child protection, safer recruitment, managing allegations against member of staff as well our approach to the Team Around the Child process. 

It is also supported by our approach to behaviour management, our response to managing bullying, our response to care and control, our response to children who are absent from school and our health and safety procedures.

These are documented in separate policies, which refer to our approach when dealing with negative impact of technology upon children’s well being where this is relevant.

Throughout our work we have a clear commitment to supporting families. We aim to work well in partnership with parents/carers and any other appropriate agencies to promote the welfare of our children.
