St Benedict’s is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and visitors to put this at the forefront of all they do. We ensure that our processes and systems are robust and regularly review these processes.
We recently underwent a successful safeguarding audit by the Cheshire East SCIES team (https://www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/schools/safeguarding_in_education/safeguarding_in_education.aspx)and take part in regular training to ensure we have the most up to date advice.
Safeguarding is a regular feature of staff meetings and SLT meetings where one-minute guides, scenario practices and quizzes are used to ensure staff training is often refreshed.
Hannah McGuire (Head) is the Designated Safeguarding lead and Catherine McBride (Deputy Head) is Deputy Safeguarding lead. Both have received training and taken part in the necessary courses and take part in the termly update briefings held by the SCIES team.
