Safety, Security and Safeguarding Children

The children’s safety is of paramount importance. Any visitors to the school during the day are only admitted through the school’s main entrance and all are required to sign in.
All our children should be brought directly into the school playground by their parents or carers, where they will be welcomed by the staff.  Similarly, parents also collect their child directly from the playground at the end of the school day. Parents are requested to always tell a member of staff before taking their child home, or if someone different is collecting their child. We do not allow children under the age of sixteen to collect the children. Staff are always available to meet parents at the end of the school day.

Safeguarding Children

Parents should be aware that the school is required by law to take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of its pupils. In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill-treatment, neglect or any other form of abuse, the Headteacher is obliged to follow the Child Protection Procedure established by the Derbyshire Safeguarding Children Board and inform Derbyshire County Council of the concern. Please let us know at once if your child has an accidental injury so that misunderstandings do not arise. The school has a comprehensive Child Protection Policy which is available on request from the main school office or downloaded from the link above.
