Safeguarding updates 2021 -2022
Safeguarding updates 2020-2021
This term we have focussed on anti-bullying in school as part of our wellbeing topic. We were ‘United Against Bullying’.
All staff have received a 2 hour training session this evening from the Local Authority on Safeguarding children. This is our annual update.
We have been learning about online safety as part of our communication topic. We have been learning about how to stay safe online, the PEGI rating of games, the information we should keep private and we have shared this with our parents in a series of assemblies.
Ashbourne Primary will receive from Derbyshire Police a notification of every incident that has been reported to them or known to them of domestic abuse where a child is known to be living in the household.
This is a Derbyshire Police initiative working with Derbyshire County Council Children’s Services. Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and this is to help schools with responses to domestic abuse by helping them support children and their families exposed to or involved in domestic abuse.
This may mean talking to pupils about their experiences, raising awareness through classroom discussion and schools activities, helping victims and families by providing to them signposting information.
We are committed to protecting children and young people and working with partners to stop domestic abuse.
