At Kingsley St John's we taking our safeguarding and child protection duty extremely seriously.  Children need to feel safe and be safe in order to flourish and live life in all its fullness.

'Church of England schools have at their heart a belief that all children are loved by God, are individually unique and that the school has a mission to help each pupil to fulfil their potential in all aspects of their personhood: physically, academically, socially, morally and spiritually. Our aim is that all may flourish and have an abundant life. Schools have a duty to try to remove any factor that might represent a hindrance to a child’s fulfilment.We want all pupils to willingly engage in learning in a safe and welcoming environment.'  Valuing All God's CHildren
