St. Mary's Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent, effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school.
We follow the procedures set out by our Child Protection Policy and take account of guidance issued by the Department for Children, Schools and Families (in particular Safeguarding Children and Safer Recruitment in Education 2007).

At St Mary’s Primary School, we take e-safety very seriously.
Using computers and technology is an increasingly important skill and understanding how to do so safely is a vital part of everybody's education: children, parents and staff alike.
We will be teaching a programme of e-safety skills to all children regularly as part of their ICT lessons.
In addition, we thought it would be useful to include links for parents who may be concerned about their child’s online safety at home or who simply wish to find out more about online security in general.
Technology is changing all the time. Whenever new advances occur, information and advice will be offered via these pages to help support your child's education and perhaps provide parents with some useful information and tips. We hope you find this useful.
