St Augustine’s Catholic High School High is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all our students in school. We believe that students have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse; where staff are vigilant for signs of any student in distress and are confident about applying the processes to avert and alleviate any such problems.
St Augustine’s Catholic High School follow the Worcestershire County Council Local Safeguarding Children Board procedures. Policies relating to safeguarding are available from this website or directly from school.
Safeguarding is about ensuring that everyone is safe from harm - safe from bullying, safe from people who could abuse, safe from discrimination or harassment - and that we all feel safe in our environment.
If your child is ever concerned about safety or well-being or about a friend, they should talk to someone such as a parent or a member of staff.
Talking helps, and if these people agree there is a problem, they will find other people to help - the designated member of staff for safeguarding is Mr Gariff.
Mr D Gariff can be contacted by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
