At St Peter’s our aim is to provide an environment where our pupils are safe and feel safe, where they are encouraged to talk and are listened to when they have a worry or concern. We require all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Parents and Carers may also contact us when they have concerns about the welfare or safety of a child or children.
The school pays full regard to DfE guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ September 2020. We ensure that all appropriate measures are applied in relation to everyone who works in the school who is likely to be perceived by the children as a safe and trustworthy adult including e.g. volunteers and staff employed by contractors. Safer recruitment practice includes scrutinising applicants, verifying identity and academic or vocational qualifications, obtaining professional and character references, checking previous employment history and ensuring that a candidate has the health and physical capacity for the job. It also includes undertaking interviews and, where appropriate, ISA and Criminal Records Bureau checks.
