Updated information on Domestic Violence Notifications

This school will receive from Derbyshire Police a notification of every incident that has been reported to them or known to them of domestic abuse where a child is known to be living in the household.
This is a Derbyshire Police initiative working with Derbyshire County Council Childrens Services. Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and this is to help schools with responses to domestic abuse by helping them support children and their families exposed to or involved in domestic abuse.
This may mean talking to pupils about their experiences, raising awareness through classroom discussion and schools activities, helping victims and families by providing to them signposting information.
This school is committed to protecting children and young people and working with partners to stop domestic abuse.


The safety and well being of the children at Saint Joseph's is paramount to all members of our school community.


The children at Saint Joseph's are taught how to keep themselves safe and how to seek help if they need to share worries.

The children tell us that they feel safe, they know that the adults listen to them and that the adults in school care for them.


We have a group of pupils who help children with their worries as well as a key adult in school.



To support parents with safeguarding their children there are a number of documents and websites that may be of interest.
