Safeguarding

As a school we safeguard and promote the welfare of pupils and staff, and work together with other agencies to ensure adequate arrangements within our school to identify, assess and support those children who may be suffering from harm. We recognise that all adults have an active part to play in protecting our students from harm, and the child’s welfare is our paramount concern.

This website has been created for the current COVID 19 situation when support can be difficult to get. It is a live website from the local authority and will continue to be updated with a variety of support mechanisms for safeguarding and wellbeing.

 

Domestic Abuse Notifications

This school will receive from Derbyshire Police a notification of every incident that has been reported to them or known to them of domestic abuse where a child is known to be living in the household.

This is a Derbyshire Police initiative working with Derbyshire County Council Childrens Services. Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and this is to help schools with responses to domestic abuse by helping them support children and their families exposed to or involved in domestic abuse.

This may mean talking to pupils about their experiences, raising awareness through classroom discussion and schools activities, helping victims and families by providing to them signposting information.

This school is committed to protecting children and young people and working with partners to stop domestic abuse.
