Our Child Protection & Safeguarding Policy V12 sets out how the School will deliver these responsibilities. This policy should be read in conjunction with:
Peer on peer abuse policy 2021
Working Together to Safeguard Children (July 2018) which is statutory guidance to be read and followed by all those providing services for children and families, including those in education.
Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022, which is the statutory guidance for Schools and Colleges.

Furthermore, we will follow the procedures set out by the Derbyshire Safeguarding Children’s Board: http://derbyshirescbs.proceduresonline.com/index.htm

In accordance with the above procedures, the School carries out an annual audit of its Safeguarding provision (S175 Safeguarding Audit, which is a requirement of the Education Act 2002 & 2006) a copy of which is sent to the Local Authority Safeguarding Team.
