Maricourt Catholic High School fully recognises its responsibilities for child protection.

School Mission Statement

"Maricourt seeks to provide and sustain a living Catholic community which is rooted in Christian values and where growth and knowledge, respect, love and fellowship are shared by all."

The Governors and staff of Maricourt recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.

The school has a series of policy and procedures which forms it's integrated safeguarding portfolio. The link for the Child Protection and Safeguarding policy can be found at the bottom of this page.

Safeguarding Policy Principles

- Welfare of the child is paramount
- All children, regardless of age, gender, ability, culture, race, language, religion or sexual identity, have equal rights to protection
- All staff have an equal responsibility to act on any suspicion or disclosure that may suggest a child is at risk of harm
- Pupils and staff involved in child protection issues will receive appropriate support

Maricourt is participating in a project run in partnership with Merseyside Police. Operation Encompass aims to support children who are affected by domestic abuse. The school is committed to providing the best possible care and support for our pupils. Please see the link below in which the Headteacher's letter outlines more information on Operation Encompass
