Safeguarding and Pastoral
The safeguarding practices at St. John's and St. Peter's CE Academy are characterised by an unwavering commitment to the well-being and safety of our children. We have implemented robust systems and procedures to ensure the protection of our students. Our approach is informed and guided by the Birmingham Right Help Right Time resource (Right Help, Right Time - Birmingham Safeguarding Children Partnership (lscpbirmingham.org.uk), which provides invaluable support and guidance in this critical area.
One of our key strategies for safeguarding is the utilisation of early help assessments. We understand that early intervention is paramount in addressing the needs of our students and their families. By identifying challenges or concerns at an early stage, we can swiftly put appropriate support in place, thereby preventing potential issues from escalating. We firmly believe that this proactive approach is essential in creating a safe and nurturing environment where our children can thrive.
Our commitment to safeguarding is unwavering, and we continuously review and adapt our procedures to ensure that they remain effective in protecting the welfare of our students. We work closely with external resources and agencies to stay up-to-date with the latest best practices and to ensure that our students are provided with the highest level of care and protection.
