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.


Domestic Abuse

 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.
