St. Mary's

Safeguarding & Pupil Welfare

Respecting the uniqueness of each person is central to the caring nature of the Academies within our Trust and a reflection of the Gospel message of love. Based on this expression the Blessed Edward Bamber Catholic Multi Academy Trust accepts its responsibilities and duties in relation to Child Protection issues. The Trust recognises that promoting children’s well-being and safeguarding them from significant harm depends crucially upon effective information sharing, collaboration and understanding between agencies and professionals.

As staff within each Academy have regular contact with children we are particularly well placed to observe outward signs of abuse, changes in behaviour or failure to develop. Parents should be aware, therefore, that where it appears to a member of staff that a child may have been abused or is in danger of abuse, the Trust is required by Law to report their concerns to the Children and Young People’s Department. Blackpool has clear procedures that the Trust supports and follows in reacting to issues of concern relating to the protection of children.
