Safeguarding at Ashgate Croft School is taken very seriously.

All staff and visitors must wear an ID badge at all times. Our school premises are secure and all visitors must sign in and show proof of identity.

We follow strict safer recruitment procedures and all staff have enhanced DBS checks to ensure that they are suitable to work with vulnerable children and young adults. All staff receive regular training.

The school work closely with other agencies to ensure that pupils and families needs are met.

If you have any concerns regarding the safety of a young person please contact Starting Point at Derbyshire County Council by telephoning 01629 533190, or use their online support request form. Please see the Starting Point Poster for further details.
