Safeguarding children to keep them safe in education is a responsibility that JSTC regards as the being of the highest priority. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and visitors to share this commitment. We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent, effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school.
School Safeguarding Team
If you want to know more about our procedures, please read our Safeguarding Policy or speak to one of the Safeguarding Team below:
Relevant staff access and log the necessary training to ensure standards are kept high and aligned with the required practice in schools.
All required checks are made on staff, and the school deploys safer recruitment techniques to ensure safeguarding matters are addressed.
The school also adheres to the requirements of the PREVENT strategy. INSET training is delivered to staff regularly throughout the academic year.
Safe Access to the Internet
An E-Safety group in school has responsibility for ensuring provision of advice and guidance to the school community including staff, students and parents. Guides are produced for students and parents and INSET delivered to staff to raise awareness of issues and concerns linked to E-Safety. Information is highlighted to students through the tutor and pastoral system as well as on school noticeboards.
The school uses external sources of guidance to complete audits of e safety standards and regularly monitors and addresses each element. Collaboration with external standards bodies and other schools also helps to maintain standards and awareness. Governors are kept informed of this element of school vigilance.
