What to do if you are concerned about a child's safety....

At Hallam Fields we take your child's safety very seriously and there are systems in place to protect all children.  If we have a concern we will raise this with you as well as using the local authority for advice and support.  Concerns are always passed to the school's Designated Safeguarding Officer - David Brown (Headteacher), in his absence Sarah Carr and Sharon Sibley (Assistant Headteachers) and Billy Hussain (Welfare Officer and Senior Mentor) are also trained as Safeguarding Leads.  All staff and volunteers are expected to follow the school procedures and have all had a DBS check carried out to ensure they are suitable to work with children.  We have a lot of different policies in place which can be found in the parents section of our website. If you are concerned about your own child please speak to a member of staff or contact the local Multi Agency Team who may be able to offer you support and advice.  They can be contacted on 01629 531949.

If you are concerned about the welfare of a child either because you think they are being neglected or are at immediate risk of danger you should use the 'Call Derbyshire' telephone number to report your concerns. The telephone number is 0845 6058058 01629 533190

If you have concerns about your child, or another child relating to extremism and radicalisation, you can receive support and advice from your local police by telephoning 101. They will treat the matter with total confidence and will do all they can to help to prevent your child turning to behaviour that breaks the law.
