St Nicholas is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
In line with our safeguarding policy and statutory guidance we have clear procedures in school for responding to any concerns about a child's safety and/or wellbeing.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with their parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.


We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
