Stopping Domestic Abuse Together:
The UTC is fully committed to ensuring that all children and young people who are affected by domestic violence are protected and safeguarded to fully achieve their potential in education. Any concerns should be reported via email to DomesticAbuse@utcderby.org.uk.
Everyone working in, or for UTC Derby Pride Park shares an objective to help keep children and young people safe by contributing to:
- Providing a safe environment for children and young people to learn in educational settings.
- Identifying children and young people who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm
taking the appropriate action with the aim of making sure they are kept safe both at home and in the Academy setting
- All staff undergo regular training to ensure they are aware of the most up to date practice in Keeping Children Safe in Education.
Students receive regular inputs and information sessions which enable them to be aware of keeping themselves safe, in school, out of school and online.
