At St Gregory the Great Catholic School the safeguarding of our children is the highest priority.  We listen to our students and take seriously, what they tell us.  Our aim is that children will enjoy their time as students in this school. We want to work in partnership with you to help your children to achieve their full potential, feel safe and make a positive contribution.

On rare occasions, our concern about a student may mean that we have to consult other agencies. Unless it is not safe for a student, we would always aim to achieve this with a parent or carers consent. The Oxfordshire Safeguarding Children’s Board has laid down the procedures, which we follow, and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this for the safety of all.

If you have any concerns regarding the safeguarding of any young person, you can contact the school and ask to speak to the Designated Safeguarding Lead.

Alternatively you can contact:  Schools Safeguarding Team at or telephone them on 01865 810603.

Safeguarding and Information Sharing

All schools hold information on its students, which is held for internal use only and is not shared with third parties. However, from time to time schools are obliged to share information with partner agencies such as the Police and Health and Social Care. Requests for information from these agencies happens very rarely, but where they do occur St Gregory the Great Catholic School will provide any information that it feels is relevant, and is in the best interest of a student’s wellbeing. Information is also shared between schools when a student moves between institutions, for example when a student moves from primary to secondary or from one secondary school to another. In all instances, student files are kept in a secure system accessed only by appropriate individuals.
