Safeguarding – our priority

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 19:13-14 

Yoxall St Peter’s recognises its legal duty under s175 Education Act 2002 (section 157 in relation to independent schools and academies) and the 1989 and 2004 Children Acts.  As a Church school, we hold true the words of Jesus, “But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea,” and remain vigilant at all times to the welfare and safety of the ‘little ones’ in our care.
