At Church Broughton Primary School we take our Safeguarding responsibilities very seriously. This means that we ensure that everyone working in our school has successfully completed the necessary clearances to enable them to work with children. Our Governor,  Mr Pykitt as well as Mr Whyman and Mr Rudge , have completed NSPCC or National College accredited Safer Recruitment Training.

We have staff members who are specifically trained and nominated as having overall responsibility for safeguarding in school. Mr Rudge is the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) and Mrs Millington and Mrs Perrett are the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads. Mr Pykitt, Mrs Perrett and Mrs Gaunt are our governors responsible for safeguarding in school.

If you need to contact school with a safeguarding concern of a pupil, please email  

Mr Gary Pykitt is the Safeguarding and Anti-Bullying Governor for our school.

All staff are kept up to date with current guidance and legislation. This includes awareness of extremism and radicalisation issues. Staff undertake training in Safeguarding every year. This is provided by the local authority and covers signs of abuse and what to do if you are concerned about a child. Our Safeguarding lead and deputy attend training updates every 2 years.

The children are regularly taught about ways in which they can stay safe. This is through PSHCE lessons, collective worship, circle time, our work on British values and by inviting visitors, such as the NSPCC, into school. Children know what to do if they have concerns regarding themselves or another child.

We are all expected to share any concerns we have about staff conduct around children with the Head of School. As in all schools, if there are concerns about the conduct of the Head of School, then these should be shared with the Chair of Governors.

The 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. This is to help schools to support children and their families who are exposed to or involved in domestic abuse. This may mean talking to children about their experiences, raising awareness through classroom discussion and activities, helping victims and families by signposting information and support.

We follow safeguarding procedures of the Department for Education and on a local level, of the Derby and Derbyshire Safeguarding Children Board. We also follow Local Authority policy where appropriate. We have robust systems in place to share concerns regarding children’s welfare with our DSL, with parents and with relevant external agencies. We may also need to consult specifically with and take advice from the Police or Children’s Social Care. By working closely together as a staff and with our partner agencies, we firmly believe that we will continue to provide a safe learning environment for all our children.

Early help and support

Where certain safeguarding concerns are raised in school, the safeguarding lead will assess whether to contact our partner Children First to request support for a child or a family. Children First can offer support in a range of ways to help the school address concerns. If you feel your child would benefit from this support, please discuss this with our team. If you have any concerns or complaints about this service, please consult the school's Complaints Procedure.
