As a school it is our responsibility to ensure the welfare and safety of our pupils against any forms of abuse, neglect or ill-treatment. If any pupil gives a member of staff cause for concern in any of these areas, action will be taken by following the Derbyshire’s Child Protection Procedures and Social Services will be informed. Children will be taught within the curriculum about their own personal safety and how to ask for help and assistance if necessary. Informing parents with regard to intervention will be done in accordance with A.C.P. C. procedures (1.4:2, 1:4:3).
In the interest of child safety each school is bound by law to appoint a Child Protection Officer, the designated senior person is Mrs Ingrid Taylor, the deputies are Mr Tom Lloyd and Mrs Kay Swinfield. The governor with safeguarding responsibility is Mrs Sue Staton.
