SJB is delighted to announce that it has been recognised as an Apple Distinguished School for 2021-2024. Apple Distinguished Schools are centres of innovation, leadership and educational excellence that use Apple products to inspire creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking.
They showcase innovative uses of technology in learning, teaching and the school environment, and have documented results of academic accomplishment.
Bullying at this school will not be tolerated
If you are being bullied or harassed, or you know of any bullying/harassment happening within the school, please report it using the link below.
Your concerns will be dealt with discretely.
SJB is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people.
If you have a concern about a student or you receive information that leads you to be concerned that a student has been harmed, is at risk of harm or their welfare is being compromised, please contact email@example.com
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a young person’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our students are discussed with their parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the young person’s welfare.
At SJB we take the wellbeing and the safety of our students very seriously. We have an extensive network of agencies and staff that can offer support to any young person and their family. We can also offer advice to signpost families in need of help.
If you are concerned about a child in anyway or wish to raise a concern about poor or unsafe practice then please contact someone on the list below or the safeguarding email link above as soon as possible.
