Child Protection

“Procedures for safeguarding pupils are robust and reviewed regularly so that pupils’ safety is ensured.” OFSTED 2011

“Pupils feel very safe in school.” OFSTED 2011

Keeping pupils safe is a priority at SMSJ and we ensure the welfare of pupils by:

  • Staff recruitment and selection – ensuring that all staff have been appropriately checked for their suitability through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), formerly the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB).
  • Raising awareness of child protection issues and equipping children with the skills needed to keep themselves safe.
  • Developing and implementing procedures for identifying and reporting cases of concern. This is likely to involve sharing information with outside agencies.
  • Supporting individual children in accordance with any child protection plan that may be in place for them.
  • e-safety – we support our pupils’ use of the internet and seek to underpin their knowledge of safe use and how to ensure their personal details are not compromised or shared inappropriately.
  • Ensuring a safe and nurturing environment free from discrimination and bullying, thus ensuring children can excel in their learning and development.
  • Encouraging full attendance for which we need the full co-operation of all families and would urge parents not to take their children out of school during term time.

SMSJ follows the Pan-London Child Protection procedures. A copy of the school’s full policy is available here.
