At St James' we understand that safeguarding of children is the responsibility of everyone. Our staff receives regular training in line with the Department of Education's 'Keeping Children Safe in Education Part 1' guidelines (see below) to recognise signs where children may be vulnerable and need help and support. If you feel concerned about any child, talk immediately to our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mrs Willis, or any member of staff to share your worries about the wellbeing of a child in our community. The Safeguarding Links page has a wealth of links to outside organisations with information on various safeguarding issues and a gallery of our safeguarding team is here.
Whilst we are so reliant on technology for our work, education, entertainment and social contacts and spending so much more time online, eSafety guidance is all the more important. ThinkUKnow has provided some updated OnlineSafetyAtHome activities for parents/carers and children to share together, divided into appropriate age ranges and other resources under the Support Tools menu heading of the ThinkUKnow website.

At St James' we take all aspects of the children's safety very seriously and this includes teaching them to use the internet appropriately, both at school and at home. As a London Grid for Learning school, we have access to many Internet Safety resources targeted specifically for children and their families, to inform on the many aspects of safety that come with the use of all technology that is capable of connecting with the internet.
