Dronfield Junior School motto: acheiving whilst making learning fun

Safeguarding and Online safety



We take the safeguarding of all our pupils very seriously.  All staff are trained in Child Protection. Anyone employed or who is a regular volunteer is checked through the Disclosure and Barring Team and are re-checked throughout their time at the school.  Referrals can be made by pupils, teaching and non-teaching staff and parents.  The Lead Safeguarding person is Mrs Thomson, and the safeguarding Deputies are: Ian Roberts (Deputy Head) and Lorna Ford.  


Keeping children safe online is the biggest child protection challenge of this generation. Parents have a vital role to play in this.

Domestic Abuse

This school 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.

This school is committed to protecting children and young people and working with partners to stop domestic abuse.
