Safeguarding and Early Help


Roliston CE Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.  Our aim is for every child who attends our school to feel safe and happy.  Whilst safegurading children and young people is everyone's responsibility, we have a dedicated Safeguarding Team in school to manage concerns and co-ordinate with other agencies.

Staff in school have a duty under the law to report any concerns that a child may be suffering significant harm, in particular if it could be as a result of abuse.  In line with our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy (that can be found under Key Information - Policies), any concerns a staff member has will be raised with the senior staff responsible for Child Protection (Safeguarding Team as above).  The team have received advanced safeguarding training as well as regular updates.


At Rosliston, we work closely with other local schools, Derbyshire Children's Services, the Health Service and the Police, who may be involved if abuse is alleged or suspected.  The school has a responsibility to collate basic information, such as who has parental responsisbitliy for a child, and to pass this information on to the relevant agencies if requested.  We also have a duty to cooperate to the best of our ability with any investigations into possible cases of child abuse to ensure the welfare of children and young people.  Whilst our aim is to work in partnership with our families, if there is any conflict of interest in informing or including parents/carers with investigations around concerns, the welfare of the children will always be our priority and inform our decision making.


Rosliston CE Primary School follows Safer Recruitment practices when employing members of staff.  All staff and regular volunteers have an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Check and all staff and gvoernors receive regular update training on Safeguarding.


If you have any questions about Safeguarding in school the please contact a member of the Safeguarding Team via the School Office.
