Safeguarding and Child Protection

JCSRS is committed to safeguarding, which is “the process of protecting children from abuse or neglect, preventing impairment of their health and development, and ensuring they are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care that enables children to have optimum life chances and enter adulthood successfully.” (UK Government)

JCSRS follows the ESF Child Protection Policy and has two Child Protection officers who work to ensure the wellbeing of students by monitoring incidences of suspected abuse or neglect, convening teams of relevant colleagues to make decisions about student welfare and making referrals, internally and externally, to specialist colleagues in order to support students who are in need.

Child Protection Officer – Belinda McLaughlin (Vice Principal)

Deputy Child Protection Officer – Anna Smakowska (Principal)

Any member of the school community with a Safeguarding / Child Protection concern should contact the above colleagues.
