Safeguarding Information Sheet
The Derbyshire Area Child Protection Committee has issued details of procedures to take account of The Children Act 2004.
Parents should be aware that the school will 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 forms of abuse, staff will have no alternative but to follow Derby and Derbyshire Safeguarding Children Procedures. Derbyshire Police are also working under a new intitiative with Derbyshire County Council and will notify the school of every incident reported to them of domestic abuse where a child is known to be living in the household. This is to help schools support children and their families and may mean talking to pupils about their experiences, classroom discussion and school activities. This school is committed to protecting children and working with partners to stop domestic abuse.
Hasland Junior School are committed to stopping Domestic Abuse.If we receive a Domestic Abuse notification from the police we will routinely monitor the child's welfare and engage with partner agencies when required. This forms part of our commitment to safeguarding all the children and young people.
