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

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.
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.
