CHILD PROTECTION AND SAFEGUARDING

At Tibshelf Infant & Nursery School we recognise that CHILD PROTECTION AND SAFEGUARDING is everybody's business. The whole community has a responsibility for KEEPING CHILDREN SAFE and A DUTY TO PROTECT them from abuse. We recognise the importance of WORKING TOGETHER TO SAFEGUARD CHILDREN.

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as:

protecting children from maltreatment;

preventing impairment of children's health or development;

ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and

taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes

IF YOU HAVE IMMEDIATE CONCERNS ABOUT A CHILD'S SAFETY OR WELFARE YOU HAVE A DUTY OF CARE TO CONTACT 'CALL DERBYSHIRE' ON 01629 533190

All Staff, including Governors & Volunteers are trained to be alert to the potential need for early help for children and know how to identify, report and intervene to provide services. Staff understand that providing early help is more effective in promoting the welfare of children than reacting later.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) in school is ZOE ANDREWS and the Deputy Safeguarding Lead is LEA ALTON. The school keeps a list of staff in the 5 Pits Partnership of Schools who are responsible for Child Protection next to the main phones in school for use in the event of an emergency, or a situation where further advice needs to be sought.

A child is in need if he/she is unlikely to achieve or maintain, or to have the opportunity of achieveing or maintaining, a reasonable standard of health or development without the provision of services by a local authority, if their health or development is likely to be significantly impaired without the provision of such services, is disabled.

The current categories of CHILD ABUSE are PHYSICAL ABUSE, SEXUAL ABUSE, EMOTIONAL ABUSE and NEGLECT.
