 Our Mission Statement

"We believe God made us all equal and unique."

"We believe people grow through finding love, friendship and support from home, school and church."

Our policies are based in the knowledge and the appreciation that each child is a unique individual with particular qualities of personality and character and endowed with distinctive physical and mental ability.

Ofsted have confirmed that any Sheffield education setting can adopt the safeguarding policies and procedures on the following  website. The Local Authority is responsible for ensuring that they are accurate and updated annually.

Our Safeguarding Team

Safeguarding at St Joseph's 

  • If you have any concerns about a student at St Joseph's, please share this information with us straight away.
  • Issues such as appearance, hygiene, behaviour, can be shared with teaching or support staff.
  • Do not worry about reporting small matters – we would rather you tell us than miss a worrying situation.
  • If you think that a student or an adult who cares for them has been or might be harmed; please talk to a member of our trained safeguarding team immediately (details above).
  • You can ask any member of staff to find them and speak to you about a confidential and urgent matter.

We are an Operation Encompass School

Operation Encompass is a partnership between police and schools

Schools receive an Operation Encompass notification when a child is exposed to (or involved in) any domestic incident. Specially trained members of our Safeguarding Team are informed so that we can respond appropriately to support the safety and wellbeing of any children and family members affected.
