Safeguarding and child protection in schools

Schools play an essential role in protecting children from abuse. They have regular contact with children and young people so are in a strong position to identify signs of abuse and neglect. Your school can safeguard children by:

  • creating safe environments for children and young people through robust safeguarding practices.

  • ensuring that adults who work in the school, including volunteers, don’t pose a risk to children.

  • making sure staff are trained, know how to respond to concerns and keep-up-to-date with policy and practice.

  • teaching children and young people about staying safe.

  • maintaining an environment where children feel confident to approach any member of staff if they have a worry or problem.

NSPCC / E-Safety

The internet is amazing. Children can play, learn, create and connect – opening up a whole world of exciting possibilities. But with the digital world changing all the time, how can you make sure your child’s staying safe?

New apps and games are released every day, it’s hard to keep up with what is safe and what might be unsafe for our young people to use. Net Aware is an app and website which can tell you! Just enter the name of the app or game, and Net Aware will inform you of how safe the app is to use.
