Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting
the welfare of children and young people. We expect all
staff, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment.
If you have concerns regarding the safeguarding or
welfare of any of our pupils, please contact Mrs Elder
(Designated Safeguarding Lead), or Mrs Scott
(Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead).
St Joseph’s participates in Operation Encompass.
Following the report of an incident of domestic abuse,
school will be advised that the child has been involved.
Please see school website for further details

If your child is eligible for free school meals, you are entitled to receive a voucher from the Covid Winter Grant Scheme, which is being distributed by Lancashire County Council.
This is a one-off payment for the Christmas holiday period to the value of £30 per eligible child. E-vouchers have been ordered through Edenred and will be delivered to the email address we hold on file for you from Saturday 19th December 2020.
The email you receive will come from Edenred and will contain an e-code which you will need to convert to an e-voucher for the supermarket of your choice. Please note school will be closed so unfortunately we will not be able to answer any questions about this, but here is the link to the Edenred parent user guide https://www.edenred.co.uk/reward-recipients/Free-School-Meal-Vouchers/.
Please note this scheme only applies if your child is eligible for benefits related free school meals. It is not for children who receive a Universal Infant Free School Meal.
