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.


We regularly review our Safeguarding procedures and employ outside agencies to quality assure our work. A recent safeguarding review by the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership concludes, “Safeguarding is expertly  led by the Head teacher who works hard to ensure that all concerns are recorded and actioned . Children identified him as the first person they  would go to if they had a concern.

Safeguarding records are secure. Concerns are recorded appropriately, they are detailed, up to date and of an excellent standard.  

Staff, including Lunchtime staff have built excellent relationships with children and the culture of safeguarding is strong.

Staff are knowledgeable and aware of current safeguarding  issues .Their training is up to date,”

We take seriously our responsibilities to protect and safeguard the interests of all pupils. This organisation recognises that effective child protection work requires sound procedures, good inter-agency co-operation and a workforce that is competent and confident in responding to child protection situations.

At Yoxall St Peter’s we aim to prepare our students to become good citizens of the future. Through our curriculum we teach pupils British Values and how to celebrate diversity. We aim to raise their awareness of radicalisation and extremist views, whatever the source. We have adopted the principles and advice found in ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education 2019’ and the 2011 ‘Prevent Strategy’. These are incorporated into our school policy on tackling extremism.
