SDAT is a Derbyshire Police initiative working with Children’s Services.
As part of SDAT, Derbyshire Police will notify the School’s Designated Safeguarding Lead of every incident of domestic abuse where a child is known to be living in the household.
Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and this is to help schools with responses to domestic abuse by helping them support children and their families exposed to or involved in domestic abuse. This may mean talking to students about their experiences, raising awareness through classroom discussion and schools activities, and helping victims and families by providing to them signposting information.
Lees Brook Community School is committed to protecting children and young people and working with partners to stop domestic abuse.
