STOPPING DOMESTIC ABUSE TOGETHER
Our school is part of the SDAT (Stopping Domestic Abuse Together ) initiative led by Derbyshire Police in conjunction with Social Care, Health Services and other agencies.
SDAT is a system to notify us quickly of any incidents of domestic abuse where the police have attended a household where children live.
This enables us to understand changes in a child’s behaviour, attitude or general presentation, and to support children as needed including referrals to other agencies as necessary.
For further information please see the NSPCC website:

The Underwear Rule (PANTS) is a simple way that parents can help keep children safe from sexual abuse – without using scary words or even mentioning sex.
