We are committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all our children in school.

St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Parents should be aware that the school regards the safeguarding of pupils as of paramount importance and will take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of its pupils.  In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a pupil may be subject to ill treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, the staff have no alternative but to follow LSCB (The Local Safeguarding Children Board) procedures and inform Social Services of their concern.

The schools designated persons for safeguarding issues: Mrs E Maher,  Mrs F Lawton (Acting Deputy), Mrs Johnson and Mrs Swanston.

The school workforce receives regular training to ensure everyone is equipped to address safeguarding issues appropriately.

Operation Encompass enables key adults in schools, police and teams within Sunderland City Council to train and work together to help children feel safe, secure and receive the appropriate support.

Gardening Gang

Our year 5 gardening gang have been hard at work in our gardens. The flowers are looking lovely in the reflection garden. The children are working hard on the allotment garden, there are so many weeds to dig out! Well done for all of the hard work.

Reception Class

Reception have been learning all about people who help them within the community. They also looked at different jobs within the NHS. The children enjoyed dressing up and stepping into role.
