Safeguarding is everyone’s Responsibility


Your child’s welfare is of paramount importance to us. It is our statutory duty of care to safeguard your child. We will also seek external support if we have any concerns about your child and, in some instances, this may mean that we consult with other agencies even before we contact you.

The procedures we follow have been laid down by the Wolverhampton Safeguarding Children’s Board. If you want to know more about such procedure, please speak to the Principal or visit

At St Michael’s, we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we expect all staff, governors, parents, volunteers and visitors to share in this commitment.

Hayley Connolly, is the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL). Adam Jewkes, Sharon Bowen and Emma Greensill are Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads (DDSL).

Our safeguarding link governor is Mr Aston. 

You may approach any of these staff members or governors if you have a concern about a safeguarding issue.
