St Mary’s Catholic School has a duty of care to all its students to provide a safe environment and to ensure their health, safety and welfare at all times.


The aims of the Missing Child Policy are as follows:

  • To ensure the safety of all students.
  • To ensure that we are able to find any child that goes missing either in School or on an activity outside School as quickly and efficiently as possible.
  • To communicate effectively and to an appropriate timescale with everyone concerned.
  • To follow up incidents and to review procedures accordingly.

The policy in full can be read here:
