Please find below our ‘at a glance’ safeguarding policy.  The full version can be found by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.


We follow the guidance in:

  • ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ (Updated July 2018);
  • “Keeping Children Safe in Education” (September 2019);
  • “What to do if you are worried a child is being abused: Advice for Practitioners”. (March 2015);
  • “Information Sharing: Advice for Practitioners providing Safeguarding Services to Children, Young People, Parents and Carers”. (July 2018);
  • “The Prevent Duty Departmental, advice for Schools and child care providers (June 2015);
  • Furthermore, we will follow the procedures set out by the Derbyshire Safeguarding Children’s Board.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies about a pupil’s welfare. We will endeavour to ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with their parents or carers first, unless we have a reason to believe that it is not in the child’s best interests. On some occasions, our concern about a child may mean that we have to consult other agencies even before we contact parents.

Our Deputy Head, Mrs Oliver, is the Designated Safeguarding Lead and designated person for Child Protection; should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact her.

Tim Boardman is our Safeguarding Governor and is also fully trained in this area; he works with Mrs Oliver to check policy documents, practices and procedures linked to Safeguarding and Child Protection.

Online safety awareness sessions for parents are offered in school. The details of these will be shared with parents. In the meantime, please see any member of staff if you have any queries.
