Sharley Park Community Primary School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all our children in school. We believe that pupils have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse; where staff are vigilant for signs of any pupil in distress and are confident about applying the/our safeguarding processes to avert and alleviate any such problems.


Safeguarding is about ensuring that everyone is:

  • Safe from harm:
  • Safe from bullying
  • Safe from people who could abuse
  • Safe from discrimination or harassment
  • Safe in our environment.


If you are ever concerned about the safety or well‐being of someone at our school please talk to one of the school’s Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs).

  • Mrs N Stevenson  Designated Safeguarding Lead
  • Mrs N French  Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
  • Mrs D Pearson Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
  • Mrs L Wass Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
  • Mrs K Moody Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
  • Mrs L Key Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead


Sharley Park Community Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This means that we have a Child Protection Policy and follow the Keeping Children Safe in Education 2020 procedures amongst others. (Please see the school policies page on our website)


Parents and carers are welcome to read the Child Protection Policy on request or via our website. Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare. If a member of staff is concerned about a child’s welfare, they will record their concern, and any observations or conversation heard, and report to one of the DSLs as soon as possible the same day.


If a member of staff has concerns which relate to the actions or behaviour of another member of staff (which could suggest that s/he is unsuitable to work with children) then this will be reported to one of the DSLs in confidence, who will refer the matter to the Headteacher (or the Chair of Governors if the concern relates to the Headteacher) who will consider what action to take.


Anyone who has concerns about the health, welfare or safety of a child can call Derbyshire County Council via Starting Point on 01629 533190.
