At St Mary & St Joseph's the health, safety and well-being of all our children is of paramount importance. Parents send their children to school each day with the expectation that our school provides a secure environment in which their children can flourish. St Mary & St Joseph's ensures that this expectation becomes reality. In order to do this a wide range of measures have been put in place as detailed in the policy documents in column 3 below.
