Useful Information

At Codnor Community Primary School, we take our safeguarding responsibilities seriously. We are committed to keeping all of our children safe.

 

To ensure this, we:

  • check that every person who works in our school has the clearances necessary to work with children;
  • have trained and nominated staff members as Designated Safeguarding Leads within our school;
  • provide accredited safer recruitment training for our Headteacher, School Business Manager and Chair of Governors;
  • carry out regular training and safeguarding updates for all staff members and school governors;
  • provide up-to-date online safety information for staff, pupils and parents;
  • filter internet traffic at the Internet Service Provider level, before it comes into school's servers and computers.

 

 

Every member of our school staff is responsible for safeguarding our children. They understand this, and are vigilant in their duty. We have a designated Safeguarding Team (listed below) to whom staff members report their concerns.

 

We follow procedures and guidance set out by Derbyshire County Council and the Derbyshire Safeguarding Children Board. We have systems in place to share concerns regarding children's welfare with our safeguarding leads, with parents, and with relevant external agencies. Should the need arise, our legal duty to safeguard our children may give us cause to consult with (and take advice from) Children's Social Care, the police, our school nurse, and Multi-Agency Teams. By working closely with our partner agencies, we can continue to offer a safe learning environment for all our children.

 

Please take the time to read our policies, and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about any aspect of safeguarding.

 

Our school's Designated Safeguarding Lead is James Blake (headteacher); and our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Jackie Waller (School Business Manager).

 

Our Safeguarding Governor is Philip Moss (Chair of Governors).

 

Our teacher responsible for Special Educational Needs is Joanna Goodburn.
