Keeping children safe – and teaching them how to stay safe – is a very important role within any school.

Defined for the purpose of this guidance as:

  • Protecting children from maltreatment.
  • Preventing impairment of children’s health or development.
  • Ensuring children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and
  • Taking action to enable all children to have the best life chances

More information is available in the pdf of the school’s Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy on the right of the page.

In Lessons

Throughout the year, children will be taught how to stay safe online and how to stay safe while ‘out and about’ both within PSHE lessons and Digital Literacy sessions.  Each year, we access the Speak Out: Stay Safe sessions through the NSPCC.

With Parents

We arranged the NSPCC to run a session on staying safe online that was well attended.  We consulted with parents about changes to our Relationship and Sex Education teaching.  We are here if you need us.


CEOP helps any child or young person under the age of 18 who is being pressured, forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity of any kind. This can be something that has taken place either online or in ‘the real world’, or both. The CEOP Safety Centre has clear information and advice on what can be reported to CEOP, the reporting process and what will happen if you do decide to make a report. You can visit the CEOP Safety Centre and make a report directly to CEOP by clicking the Click CEOP button.
