Safeguarding notice - visitors

Safeguarding notice for visitors to the College:

Safeguarding Notice

“To live only for Christ and the extension of his kingdom” is at the heart of the charism of Blessed Edmund Rice.

 

St Ambrose College is a Catholic community which expects of its members the highest standards of behaviour towards all those who form part of the school community.

 

We work together actively to promote an environment that is orderly and disciplined; a school in which care, courtesy and concern for others are central to how we behave.

 

The school is committed to developing in our pupils a set of values and beliefs which reflect the central themes of our school’s mission and that of the Holy Roman Catholic Church and of Blessed Edmund Rice; themes of presence, compassion and liberty. As such, we engender in our pupils an ability to distinguish between right and wrong, to be honest, compassionate and tolerant, and to show respect for others.

 

Putting this into practice, the school has a clear Code of Conduct, thorough behaviour management procedures and a robust system of rewards and sanctions.

 

In our College we recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all boys and staff. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where all are supported, respected and valued. We are alert to signs of abuse and neglect and follow procedures to ensure that all in our community receive effective support, protection and justice.

 

Whilst visiting the College we expect you to respect our staff and boys and to follow College procedures. IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS PLEASE INFORM THE DESIGNATED SENIOR PERSON BEFORE YOU LEAVE.

 

·      The Senior Designated Person is Mr Arthur, Deputy Head.
