Safer Recruitment

The de Ferrers Trust is committed to providing the highest level of education and care to its students and to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. 

The de Ferrers Trust recognises that the safe recruitment of its staff in the trust is essential to safeguard the children in attendance. It is our duty to prevent unsuitable people from working with children - ensuring we practice safe recruitment in checking the suitability of staff and volunteers to work with children.

Safer practice in recruitment means thinking about and including issues relating to child protection and safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children at every stage of the process and for all people being recruited.  For all posts enquiries will be made with previous employers about whether a safeguarding concern has been raised against you.

All schools must appoint staff in accordance with employment law. 

See our Safer Recruitment Policy below for further details.

We made aeroplanes and helicopters and found out about air resistance and gravity. We looked at images and books about planets and ordered the planets. We talked about friction, explored this by testing cars on ramps with different surfaces to see what helps cars travel faster

Year 1 were studying physics in their science investigation - flight, gravity and air resistance in practise. Viscosity- the runniness of substances- we made oobleck (cornflour slime) which can exist as a solid and liquid. We explored floating and sinking- buoyancy.

We used magnifying glasses to look at our own fingerprints and we printed them on paper using ink, paint, or chalk and sellotape. After that we identified which type of fingerprint we have - arch, loop or whorl. We now know we did the crime! Mrs Sleigh 🧐

Year 2 science investigation. We had to solve the mystery case of who ate all the sweets! We set up a crime scene and discussed how we would solve the case, we pretended to be police detectives. We learnt about fingerprints, how they are unique and significant for solving crime.
