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 is a way of thinking and working together as services with families that have additional or more complex needs.  Early help can prevent problems from getting worse by providing support to families when a need is identified or as soon as a problem emerges.

Mental Health

At St Joseph's  School, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils and staff. We know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play.

At our school we:

  • help children to understand their emotions and feelings better
  • help children feel comfortable sharing any concerns or worries
  • help children socially to form and maintain relationships
  • promote self-esteem and ensure children know that they count
  • encourage children to be confident and ‘dare to be different’
  • help children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks
  • Universal Support– To meet the needs of all our pupils, through our overall ethos and our wider curriculum. For instance developing resilience for all.
  • Additional support– For those who may have short term needs and those who may have been made vulnerable by life experiences such as bereavement.
  • Targeted support–  For pupils who need more differentiated support and resources or specific targeted interventions such as wellbeing groups or personal mentors.
