The following principles form the basis of our Child Protection Policy:

  • The young person’s welfare is of paramount importance;
  • Young people have a right to feel safe, to be heard, listened to and taken seriously;
  • We have a pastoral responsibility towards the children in our care and should take all reasonable steps to ensure their welfare is safeguarded and their safety is preserved;
  • A proper balance must be struck between protecting young people and respecting the rights and needs of the parents and families; but where there is conflict, the young person’s interests must come first.
