SAFEGUARDING - Keeping children safe online

Safeguarding

Our priority is always the safety of our children. Here are some reminders about who to contact if you have a concern and how to help keep children safe.

If at any point you have a concern about a child, please contact the relevant person as outlined on page 2 of our Safeguarding Policy. This policy can be found in Key Documents > Policies

 

Online Safety

The internet can be a fantastic resource for us all, and a wonderful way to stay in contact with family and friends. However, it is vital that we support children in keeping safe online. A few things to consider:

  • Do you know what your child is doing online?
  • Do you know who they are talking to online?
  • Do you know what apps they use?
  • Do you know how to set privacy settings?
  • Do you know if their devices are turned off at night?
