Safeguarding

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mrs Hallsworth (Head of School).
 
Mr Hetherington (Executive Head), Miss Clutterbuck (Deputy Head) & Mrs Rhodes (School Business Manager) are also DSL trained. 
 
All staff members have a responsibility to ensure children are as safe as possible. Should you have any concerns about the welfare, health or safety of a child please contact a DSL.
 
DSLs can also be contacted through this email address safeguarding@scargill.derbyshire.sch.uk.
 
Starting Point - If you are concerned that a child is suffering or is at risk of significant harm please contact Call Derbyshire on tel: 01629 533190 immediately.

From September 2021, local authorities will receive funding to resource Virtual School Heads to work with early years settings, schools, colleges and social care leaders to create a culture of high aspirations that helps all children with social workers to make educational progress. The Virtual School for Derbyshire is currently reviewing its support and as a school we are waiting for this information to be shared.
