Keeping Children Safe
As a school, we want to make sure that all parents/carers are equipped and informed to be able to keep children safe. This means more than just making sure they are physically safe, but looking after their emotional and mental well-being too. They need to know how to keep themselves safe when they are out, and to ensure they know all about online safety, on social networks, and when using their mobile phones.
Please find below some links to several websites, videos, and documents that provide advice and support to help you keep your children safe.

The UK Government has launched a new advice and support site to help keep children safe from sexual abuse. The site includes advice for parents and carers on spotting the signs of sexual abuse and speaking to your child about relationships and safety. It also signposts to sources of further support for children, adults and professionals including the NSPCC helpline and Childline.
