Designated Safeguarding Lead
At St Joseph’s College we are committed to Safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all our students.
Children, parents and staff are encouraged to report any concerns they may have about safety and welfare to our designated Senior Staff for Safeguarding and Child Protection:
As part of our commitment to safeguarding our students, we have partnered with Staffordshire Police to take part in a home office initiate called Operation Encompass, the aim of which is to facilitate the swift sharing of information between police forces and schools.
Launched in February 2021, Operation Encompass is an information sharing partnership between Staffordshire Police and Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent educational settings (from Reception through to Higher Education) that allows schools to offer immediate support for children and young people experiencing domestic abuse.
Information obtained by the police at the attendance of a domestic abuse incident is shared with a school prior to the start of the next school day which enables appropriate support to be given dependent on the needs and wishes of the child.
