Keeping Children Safe

At Oakwood Junior School, we aim to work in partnership with pupils, parents, staff and outside agencies to ensure the safety of all of our children.

For relevant Safeguarding policies, please look at the “Policies” link under the “Our School” tab above.


Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is the Deputy Head, Nicola Fray. If you have a concern please email her on: or telephone on 01332 571231.


If neither Mrs Fray, or the Head, Mr Darby is available please contact Derby City Social Care Team at Ashtree House on 01332 641172 – 218 Osmaston Road, Derby, DE23 8JX.

Ghost Mode In Snapchat

As of June 2017, snapchat has added a feature to show the users location to their friends via the app. However it is possible for this to be disabled within Snapchat by selecting Ghost Mode. Ghost Mode will prevent anyone from seeing the users locations.
