Safeguarding and Child Protection

Dear Parents

Holy Cross Primary School is committed to ensuring that 'Safeguarding children' at our school is given the highest priority and permeates all aspects of school life. We endeavour to be meticulous and systematic in our implementation of policies and routines.

Safeguarding our pupils involves every member of the school community and has a sharp eye on the particular circumstances and needs of all pupils, especially the most vulnerable. Annual review of policies and procedures help focus minds on the need to ensure that all appropriate steps are taken to guarantee and promote children's safety. We look forward to a strong partnership with our parents and external agencies including The Child Protection Service, CCMS and the PSNI to achieve the highest standards of best practice. 

Yours sincerely 

Mr. R. J. Dinsmore (August 2016)
