Safeguarding and Child Protection

St John’s  is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have safer recruitment procedures in place, and a range of policies to ensure that your child is safe while at school. These can be found below. The Safeguarding and Child Protection policy is reviewed regularly by governors and updated annually.

The aims of these policies and procedures are to provide a safe environment for the children. We also aim to identify children who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm, taking appropriate action if required to keep them safe both in school and at home. This includes preventing unsuitable people working with the children; ensuring visitors and volunteers are appropriately checked,  promoting safe practice (and challenging poor and unsafe practice); maintaining a safe and secure school site, and protecting pupils from harm online. We also help pupils to reject extremist views,  and we  constantly review and update our practices in all areas of safeguarding.

Please see below for our key safeguarding policies, and for guidance on keeping your child safe online.

Swimming Statement


We finish this academic year with 80% of the Year 6’s being able to swim 25M and self rescue. This is slightly less than last year due to COVID 19 and not being able to reassess the children who hadn’t secured the required level.


At the end of last year (August 2019) 95% of the year group achieved the swimming standard set in the National Curriculum.
