The welfare of children and adults is of paramount importance to Frederick Gent School. Safeguarding is the responsibility of every member of staff and covers the recruitment of staff, visitors to school, the school site, attendance, behaviour and the safety of all students and staff. All staff receive annual appropriate safeguarding training including recognising potential signs of abuse or risk.
If you have concerns about the health, safety or well-being of a student, you should share this information with an appropriate member of staff immediately. Any concern, however small, is important.
If you have immediate and urgent concerns regarding the safeguarding of a young person, you should contact either the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mike Bradshaw (mike.bradshaw@frederickgent,ttct.co.uk) or Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead, Leah Hine (firstname.lastname@example.org). Alternatively, you can also contact Derbyshire Starting Point on 01629 533190.
We always encourage students to share their concerns with any adult in school. Those students who feel less confident in doing this, can use our confidential reporting system, which can be accessed by visiting https://fgs.thesharpsystem.com.
If you have any concerns regarding a member of staff, these should be reported directly to the Headteacher, Mr Woollard (email@example.com). If your concerns are related to the Headteacher, you should contact the Chair of Governors, Mrs Sally Bridges (firstname.lastname@example.org)..
