Dear Parents / Carers,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our school.

St Philomena’s Catholic High School for Girls is a vibrant learning community. We seek to provide opportunities for all our students to achieve their very best, to grow in confidence and become independent young women.

Our students are encouraged to be ambitious and to have high aspirations. We actively encourage them to take a lead role in their education and develop their learning whilst maturing into confident, resilient, resourceful young women able to face any challenge.

Our school motto is from Psalm 127, ‘Unless the Lord build the house, they labour in vain who build it’. Christ is at the heart of all we do; the rich liturgical life of the school is celebrated in a variety of ways.

Our curriculum is designed to ensure it meets the needs of all our students with an excellent range of subjects and pathways both at GCSE and A Level. We encourage students to be inquisitive, open to new ideas and to never cease in their thirst for knowledge. Students at St Philomena’s succeed regardless of their ability. We know our students well and we know how they learn best. Our success is due to our collaborative partnership with home. We value parents’ contributions and aim to ensure they are fully involved in helping their daughters to make progress and take decisions about their future.

Our students are our greatest ambassadors; the vast majority progress to our Sixth Form and thereafter to university or further education. We have a very active alumni network. When you visit, please do speak to our students; we are very proud of their achievements and the values they share make our community special. 

We hope you will enjoy exploring our website.

Yours faithfully

Ms Noone BSc (Hons) MBA

Headteacher

 

Safeguarding Statement 

At St Philomena’s the health, safety and well-being of every student is of paramount importance. We expect all staff, governors, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment to safeguarding the young people in our care.

We listen to our students and take seriously what they tell us. All school staff are trained in Child Protection and students are made aware of the adults they can talk to if they have any concerns. Staff are trained to look out for signs of harm or neglect and are required to report these to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) or the Deputy DSL.

The procedures which we follow have been laid down in ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ (July 2018) and ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (Sept 2018) and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this, for the safety of all. On rare occasions our concern about a child may mean that we have to consult other agencies. Where possible we will ensure that all concerns are discussed with parent/carers first, before any referrals are made, unless we believe that such a move may be contrary to a child’s welfare.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Miss O’Reilly (Assistant Headteacher)

The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Ms Cox.

The Deputy Safeguarding Leads are Ms Noone (Headteacher), Mr Keane, Ms Hensman, Mrs O'Connor, Mr Balachandran, Miss Lawson, Miss Qureshi, Miss King, Ms Snowden, Mrs Town, Miss Wheeler, Mr Stavrou, Ms Slark, Ms Cox, Mrs Ridge, Mrs Wise.

The Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy is available here.
