Safeguarding

Safeguarding

Safeguarding at Earl Sterndale School is our top priority. Our Safeguarding approach is designed to ensure all children feel safe and are safe at school and in the world beyond the school walls. We adopt the approach that Safeguarding is everybody’s business and it is a thread that runs through all our decision-making, planning and actions. We ensure staff are effectively trained and that all policies, procedures, documents and systems are rigorous and robust from recruitment to reporting to recording and that we have an active system for reviewing and improving our practice. We aim to provide our children with a safe and secure learning environment where all stakeholders – staff, governors, pupils, parents / carers, support services, the local community – all have positive, trusting, purposeful relationships allowing our children to flourish and achieve the best outcomes. We work closely with a range of external agencies to ensure every child is safe from harm.

If you have any Safeguarding concerns, please contact school either by phone (01298 83263) or via our Safeguarding email address: safeguarding@earlsterndale.derbyshire.sch.uk.  This email address is checked regularly by staff, during and out-of-school hours, including weekends and school holidays.

All Safeguarding matters are dealt with discreetly and confidentially. 

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Daniel Holden (Headteacher).

Please refer to the Policies section on this website to read our Safeguarding Policies.

Online Safety

All our online devices are regularly filtered and monitored by school with support from our IT provider and we use Internet Watch Foundation technology to make the internet a safe place for our children to learn.
