Safeguarding at Holy Cross

Holy Cross fully recognises our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils. We wish to create a safe, welcoming and vigilant environment for children where they feel valued and are respected.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a young person’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our students are discussed with their parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the young person’s welfare.

At Holy Cross we take the well-being and the safety of our pupils very seriously. We have an extensive network of agencies and staff that can offer support to any young person and their family. We can also offer advice to signpost families in need of help.
