Keeping Our Children Safe 

Safe Touch Certificate

At St Joseph's, we use an online safeguarding, behaviour and information log called CPOMS. CPOMS can only be fully accessed by the safeguarding team, and is a very secure and safe way to store information. If you would like to discuss the information we keep, or have any further questions, please make an appointment to see one of the safeguarding team.

EARLY HELP TEAM DONCASTER
