Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment.
If you have concerns regarding the safeguarding or welfare of any of our pupils, please contact Mrs G Smith (Designated Safeguarding Lead), or Mrs Wells (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads) or Mr Fielding (Designated Safeguarding Leads reserve)
St Paul’s participates in Operation Encompass. Following the report of an incident of domestic abuse, school will be advised that the child has been involved. Please see school website for further details

Just like every school, we have a group of volunteers who form our Governing Board. We have several kinds of governors determined by how they are elected to their role.
Foundation Governors (PCC and POM) are appointed by the Parish and Diocese.
Parent Governors are elected by our parents.
Staff Governors, (this includes the Head and a teacher), are either elected, or in the case of the Head, given a place due to their post (Ex-Officio)
Local Authority Governors are nominated by Lancashire County Council.
Governors meet each term to discuss matters affecting the school. They meet as both small committees, which oversee the buildings, finance, staffing and curriculum, and as a full body.
Currently, our Governing Board is made up of the following people:
