Squid Games -
Over the past week or so we have had a lot of queries from schools in relation to children (including our primary school children) discussing the Netflix series Squid Game despite its PEGI rating of 15 and over. Please see link below which provides more information.
The Department for Education has commissioned the NSPCC to establish a dedicated independent helpline for people who have experienced sexual abuse in educational setting.
The helpline went live on 1 April 2021, and will provide both children and adults who have experienced sexual abuse in schools with support and advice, including onward action such as contacting the police if they wish to. The helpline will also provide support to parents and professionals. Anyone who gets in touch through this dedicated helpline will also be signposted to other relevant support services available, including Childline, which provides ongoing support and counselling to children and young people.
The dedicated and confidential NSPCC helpline – Report Abuse in Education can be reached on 0800 136 663 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m pleased to inform parents the Prevent Team now have a presence on the Leeds City Council website. The information provided on the site will provide people with knowledge of Prevent in Leeds, how to notice the signs of radicalisation and where to go for support. There are also links to very useful documents as well as information on the Channel programme that we hope people find useful.
