Useful Information

At Codnor Community Primary School we take our Safeguarding responsibilities very seriously. We are committed to keeping all of our children as safe as possible all of the time. To ensure this we:


  • Check every working person in our school has successfully completed the necessary clearances to enable them 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 

We follow procedures and guidance set out by Derbyshire County Council and the Derbyshire Safeguarding Children Board, and 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, part of our legal duty to safeguard our children may also include us consulting specifically with (and taking advice from) the police, Children's Social Care, our School Nurse, and Multi Agency Teams.


By working closely together as a school and with our partner agencies, we firmly believe that we will 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 the school should you have any questions about any aspect of Safeguarding.


Although every member of our school staff team is responsible for and extremely vigilant with every aspect of Safeguarding at our school we do have a designated Safeguarding Team who staff members report their concerns to.


The Designated Safeguarding Lead in our School is our Headteacher James Blake 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
