A Day in the life of Scarcliffe Pupils:

Recently we invited Sarah Mann (a local photographer) in to school to capture our children at work and play.  These pictures capture some of the things that take place each day.  

We hope you enjoy the slideshow.

If you are impressed with the quality of the pictures and are looking for a local photographer, why not consider Sarah Mann.  Click on the link below to visit her website.

Teacher Training

Part of our role at school is to support trainees who are entering the profession.  We work with trainee teachers who are entering through the BA route and through the School Direct route.  The School Direct programme is organised through our connections with The 4Derbyshire Teaching School Alliance.  

On Tuesday 21st April, we are holding two open day sessions to encourage people considering entering the teaching profession to come along and find out more.  Book a place at these events by following the links below:

Safeguarding children

The most important job we have in school is to keep our pupils safe.  All staff receive regular safeguarding training and we have systems to ensure that any risks or concerns are reported and dealt with quickly.  

In school we have a designated safeguarding lead and a deputy designated safeguarding lead. They are Mr Marsh (DSL) and Miss Baldwin (deputy DSL).  Our lead safeguarding governor is Mrs Smyth.  If you ever have any safeguarding concerns you can always speak to any member of staff.  If you have any concerns about the safety or well-being of any member of our school community, these should be shared with the head teacher -

We think that it's important for children to know how to keep themselves safe.  The children in Class 4 have designed a leaflet to show children how to stay safe and give them information about what to do if they feel at risk of harm.  CLICK HERE for a copy of the child friendly leaflet.  

One of the biggest challenges we face nowadays is keeping children safe online.  We work hard to make sure children have the skills and knowledge needed.  

Below are a number of links that you can use to help keep your children safe when they are on the Internet.

If you are concerned about your child's online safety it might need to be reported to the police.  You can do this by reporting concerns to CEOP.  Click on the image below for more information and to make a report.
