Safeguarding

 

Our first priority is the protection of the children and young people with whom we work. We follow the National Safeguarding Policy for the Catholic Church from the Catholic Safeguarding Standards Agency (CSSA).

If you are concerned about the welfare of a child or adult at risk, do not delay in contacting the police, using 999 if a child or adult is believed to be in immediate danger.

In the Music Department, we audit safeguarding as part of our termly staff review process. Staff are required to confirm in writing that they are familiar with CSSA documentation, Keeping Children Safe in Education, and Diocesan policies on health and safety, online safety and whistle-blowing.

All our staff and chaperones undergo an enhanced DBS check, including a check of the children’s barred list, and we comply with the ratios stipulated in our policy.

Further information about our procedures is available from the CSSA or by contacting us.

The Diocesan Safeguarding Office can be contacted on 0113 261 8069 or safeguarding@dioceseofleeds.org.uk.
