Keeping our children safe is our number one priority


Safeguarding arrangements at Wirksworth Junior are underpinned by three key principles:


- Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility: all staff, governors and volunteers play their full part in keeping our children safe.


- Wirksworth Juniors operates a child-centred approach: a clear understanding of the needs, wishes, views and voices of children.


- All staff, governors and volunteers have a clear understanding regarding abuse and neglect in all forms; including how to identify, respond and report. This also includes knowledge in the process for allegations against professionals.  All staff and several governors undertake regular safeguarding training. 


Governors closely oversee the school's work and monitor the annual S175 Safeguarding audit which Wirksworth Junior School undertakes.
