Safeguarding and Online safety
We take the safeguarding of all our pupils very seriously. All staff are trained in Child Protection. Anyone employed or who is a regular volunteer is checked through the Disclosure and Barring Team and are re-checked throughout their time at the school. Referrals can be made by pupils, teaching and non-teaching staff and parents. The Lead Safeguarding person is Mr Peter Johnston and the safeguarding deputies are Mrs Laura Dunker-Brown and Miss Abbie Watts.
Keeping children safe online is the biggest child protection challenge of this generation. Parents have a vital role to play in this.

Childline Kids - help online for children under 12
Childline Kids is an area dedicated to supporting children under 12 years old. It allows young children to access child-friendly advice covering a wide range of topics such as bullying, self-esteem and staying safe. The site also features games, videos and friendly illustrations, providing a fun, reassuring and safe space for children online.
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 Children’s 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.
