Safeguarding

Glossopdale School is part of a Safer School Partnership in association with Derbyshire Constabulary.

We believe that staying safe is a fundamental part of a child growing up; children cannot enjoy their childhoods or achieve their full potential unless they are safe.

 The environment children grow up in today is different to that in which their parents grew up in. Changing family and community structures mean that many parents no longer have the same informal networks of support.

 In some areas children and young people are facing the threat of serious violence from street gangs. Despite improvements in road safety, young drivers and child pedestrians are still at risk. And some groups of children are more vulnerable to harm than others. New technologies can also mean new opportunities for children to come to harm – on the internet or as victims of cyber-bullying.

At Glossopdale School, we believe children and young people’s safety is everyone’s responsibility.
