Keeping Children Safe

  • This page is designed for Parents and Carers.

    Information for children can be found in the 'Pupils' section of the wesbite.

    Online Safety

    As a parent or carer, if you are concerned about online activity, you can submit a report to CEOP (Child Exploitation & Online Protection Centre).

    CEOP is here to help young people who are being approached online and being asked to chat about, or participate in , things that make them feel uncomfortable.

    This might be someone:

    • chatting inappropriately about topics that make your child feel uncomfortable;
    • asking your child to do things that make them feel uncomfortable;
    • asking your child to do inappropriate things or show inappropriate parts of their body on a webcam;
    • asking your child to meet up with someone, who they have only met online;
    • asking for inappropriate pictures of your child;
    • making your child feel unsafe.

    If you discover that any of these things have happened to your child, we urge you to report it to the CEOP team here.

    Walking to School Without an Adult

    As your child gets older, it is likely they’ll want a bit more independence – including walking to and from school without an adult. Walking to school with friends is a natural step (pardon the pun!) for them to take – but when is the right time to allow them to do this? Below is a document from the NSPCC that provides some useful tips and information.

    Mobile Devices and Games Consoles

    There are a vast number of different devices that can now be used by children to access the online world and while there are many benefits to this children need to be educated (both in school and at home) regarding how to use these devices in a responsible and safe way. The UK Safer Internet Centre have produced some handy, easy-to-read leaflets that provide a variety of safety tips.

    NSPCC 'PANTS' Rules

    In school, we have adopted these rules and teach them to the children regularly as part of our PSHE and SRE curriculum. The aim of these rules is, ultimately, to help keep all children safe. These rules help teach children important messages about respecting their body, that it belongs to them; keeping private parts of their body private; ‘no means no’; and that talking to trusted adults about worries and secrets is important. Below are two attachment : a guide for parents and carers to support this NSPCC campaign to eliminate sexual abuse and a child friendly version of the rules.
