Safeguarding notice for visitors to the College:
“To live only for Christ and the extension of his
kingdom” is at the heart of the charism of
Blessed Edmund Rice.
St Ambrose College is a Catholic community
which expects of its members the highest standards of behaviour towards all
those who form part of the school community.
We work together actively to promote an
environment that is orderly and disciplined; a school in which care, courtesy
and concern for others are central to how we behave.
The school is committed to developing in our
pupils a set of values and beliefs which reflect the central themes of our
school’s mission and that of the Holy Roman Catholic Church and of Blessed
Edmund Rice; themes of presence, compassion and liberty. As such, we engender
in our pupils an ability to distinguish between right and wrong, to be honest,
compassionate and tolerant, and to show respect for others.
Putting this into practice, the school has a
clear Code of Conduct, thorough behaviour management procedures and a robust
system of rewards and sanctions.
In our College we recognise our moral and
statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all boys and
staff. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where all are
supported, respected and valued. We are alert to signs of abuse and neglect and
follow procedures to ensure that all in our community receive effective
support, protection and justice.

College procedures. IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS PLEASE INFORM THE DESIGNATED
