Safeguarding at St. John’s College

It is important that all young people at St. John’s stay safe, are happy, and enjoy life.

If you have a concern about how you have been treated, or if someone has hurt you, you need to ask for help straight away.

St. John’s has a team of people who will make sure that you get the help you need. They are called the safeguarding team. Find out who they are below or you can download this poster .

We are all responsible for safeguarding

Staff at St. John’s College work together to ensure that, within all learning and residential environments, human values are promoted. All students and staff are protected from harassment, bullying, and discrimination. We promote all forms of equality and foster an understanding and respect for people of all faiths (or those with no faith), races, genders, ages, disability, and sexual orientations.

Safeguarding practices

St. John’s has very effective safeguarding practices and will take guided preventative measures to protect young people from the risk of radicalisation, extremism and forms of abuse, grooming and bullying.  Young people are assessed and closely monitored with their use of the internet and educated in the risks associated with using social media sites.
