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 you do not have fixed broadband at home and cannot afford additional data for your devices, we may be able to apply on your behalf to temporarily increase your data allowance while your child cannot attend school.
The scheme is currently available on the following networks: Three, Smarty, Virgin Mobile, EE, Tesco Mobile and Sky Mobile. Other providers may join the scheme in the future.
In order to apply on your behalf, we will need to know:
You cannot apply directly, all applications must be made through school.
We also have a small supply of Vodafone data only SIMs which can provide 30GB to use for 90 days. These can be used on a smart laptop/dongle or a smartphone. If your phone is locked to another network, you would need to contact your provider to request for your phone to be unlocked. You would also not be able to use your phone to make calls/texts while using the data SIM.
If you would like to take up either of these options, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested in us applying to increase your data allowance, you must provide the information set out above. If you are interested in a Vodafone data only SIM, this would need to be collected from school.
