Care of your child is extremely important to us. Every school in Derbyshire is required to follow a set procedure in cases of suspected child abuse. All Headteachers are expected to refer any concerns to the Social Services Department for further investigation so that children at risk can be identified quickly. When a school refers a concern about a pupil to Social Services Department it is not accusing parents of abuse but simply following Derbyshire Child Protection Procedure by passing on required information.
Speedwell Infant School has a culture of listening to children. Mrs Hicks and Mrs Ridsdale are the School named designated lead professionals for Safeguarding.
We are very proud to announce that in July 2015 the school was awarded the ‘Derbyshire STOP Anti-Bullying Award’ by Derbyshire County Council. A copy of the certificate can by viewed via the link on the Anti-Bullying section of the pull down menu at the top of this page.

‘Share Aware’ offers lots of information from the NSPCC, which advises parents how to keep their children safe online.
‘Net Aware’ gives parents information about apps, games and social networks which children may be accessing. It helps parents and carers decide how suitable they are for their children, and how to talk to their children about it.
