St Richard’s staff has a responsibility to protect and safeguard the welfare of all children and young people they come into contact with. The need for guidelines and procedures is important to ensure that this is done with understanding and clarity. We follow the statutory and non-statutory guidance for schools and colleges including Keeping Children Safe in Education, September 2018, Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015, What to do if you’re worried a child is being abused: Advice for practitioners, March 2015 and Teacher Standards 2011 (updated 2013).
The person with lead responsibility for safeguarding within the organisation is:
- Mrs Griffin

As a minimum all permanent members of staff have undertaken Hull Safeguaridng Board Level One Safeguarding training; this is updated every 3 years.
The leads for safeguarding have completed additional training to fulfil this role, a list of all Child Protection staff training is available on request. The Headteacher will nominate other staff to receive other relevant training.
Additional updates and training will be given at staff meetings and other training opportunities throughout the year.
