Striving for





All adults in school have a responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

Safeguarding children is a priority for our academy. We have clear aims, policies and procedures to keep children safe.  Our Child Protection Policy complies with the Derbyshire Local Safeguarding Children Boards Child Protection Procedures. 

The procedures place a statutory duty on Temple Normanton Junior Academy and adults in school to safeguard and promote the welfare of children with due consideration to equality.

Our systems are designed to: 

Prevent unsuitable people working with children and young people.

Promote safe practice and challenge poor and unsafe practice.

Identify instances in which there are grounds for concern about a child’s welfare and give adults in school the route for them to take the appropriate action.

The recruitment of staff to the academy is carried out with due regard to the statutory documentation from the DFE  Keeping children Safe in Education 2023

Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs Leica Carter - Principal- SENCo

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead: Miss Natasha Froggatt
