Safeguarding and Child Protection

At St John's Primary School the safeguarding and protection of our children is everyone's responsibility. 


Safeguarding determines the actions that we take to keep children safe and protect them from harm in all aspects of their school life. As a school we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our pupils. 


The actions that we take to prevent harm; to promote wellbeing; to create safe environments; to educate on rights, respect and responsibilities; to respond to specific issues and vulnerabilities all form part of the safeguarding responsibilities of the school. 


We recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children. We make every effort to provide a safe and welcoming environment underpinned by a culture of openness where both children and adults feel secure, able to talk and believe that they are being listened to. We maintain an attitude of “it could, and does, happen here” where safeguarding is concerned.


Below are our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policies, along with latest Government Guidance. 


If you have a concern for a member of the school community, child or adult, please get in contact with Hampshire Children's Services: Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5pm, phone 0300 555 1384

If it's an emergency and a child is in immediate danger, call 999
