At St Cuthbert's we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. 

"The work the school does to keep its students safe is exemplary. Safeguarding is very much at the heart of this school and the leadership of this area is very impressive. The school’s approach to safeguarding is summed up by one senior leader, who says that their aim is to make sure that there is an ‘arena of safety’ for all students." Ofsted, September 2016
