For Parents


The school’s responsibilities relating to safeguarding are extensive and very important. Staff have to attend regular safeguarding training sessions as does the designated safeguarding Governor. Safeguarding requirements are regularly changed and constantly updated. The latest regulations and advice relating to safeguarding in schools can be found on the following links:

 Keeping Children Safe in Education (2015)

 Working together to Safeguard Children(2015)

Guidance for safer working with children

If you have concerns about a child outside of the school environment, please contact the Derbyshire Safeguarding Children Board.

A copy of the school Safeguarding Policy is available here.

Internet Safety


We have moved with the times in ICT and have a good supply of wi-fi netbooks which the children use on a daily basis for their work. We take internet safety seriously in our school and the latest Ofsted report agreed with us that the children have a good understanding of how to keep safe including with cyber-bullying. There is strict internet security in school and we teach children how to use the internet safely .

Our eSafety Policy describes how we go about safeguarding pupils in this aspect of their lives.

There are two files here - one is a set of 'rules' for using the internet safely, the other is advice from parentline plus about how to avoid cyberbullying. Click on each of the documents to download a copy.

Mission Statement

We celebrate our Anglican Foundation and are committed to promoting a love of learning and the very highest academic expectations. We believe every child is entitled to a rich education which promotes self-confidence and a healthy mind and body. We are a school where prayer forms an integral part of the school day and which celebrates and shows respect for our children’s faiths and for the faiths and cultures of other people. We are determined to help our children become the best person they can be.

“Living, Laughing, Learning Together”


The School's responsibilities regarding Safeguarding are extensive and very important.

 Here is what the leading Safeguarding Manager had to say about our procedures:  "I am hoping that all schools can reach the levels you have in looking after your pupils, staff and reassuring parents/carers you are working hard to help children feel safe and happy".

References to the current regulations covering safeguarding are provided on the Official Bits page.

Published Data

Usually, we are not allowed to publish data about the school owing to our small group numbers (cohorts), but this year data about our pupil performance will be published. Look out for it on the Ofsted site.


There has been a lot of coverage in the media about schools becoming Academies.  Does this affect Mugginton Primary School?  The Governors have an opinion and a plan.

Morning Entry

The procedure for morning entry has changed. Here is a copy of the the letter sent to all parents and carers regarding the revised arrangements.

Bad Weather

In the event of snow, our priority is always the safety of our pupils, parents and staff. Every effort will be made to keep school open, but we recognise that a number of pupils and staff travel quite a distance to school. This will be taken into account when deciding whether or not to close school. If heavy snow has fallen and school has to be closed, the website ( and Twitter Feed (@muggintonCE) will be updated and a text message sent out to parents by 8am.

Playground Surface

Staff and governors are committed to keeping all children safe at all times. We are aware the playground can become slippery in winter conditions. If you would like to learn more about what we are doing to maintain the playground surface, please click here.
