Safeguarding

As a school, we take the safeguarding of our community very seriously. If you have concerns about the welfare or safeguarding of a child, please make sure you act upon it. You can speak confidentially to the class teacher in the first instance, or one of our Child Protection team. In emergencies you may need to contact the NSPCC, Social Care or the police.

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 help@nspcc.org.uk.

Safeguarding Alert

 

We have been made aware of an app released in April this year which poses a significant risk to children and young people, UNICO LIVE is a relatively new live-streaming app developed by a Hong Kong based company. The App features unicorn imagery, which may make it attractive to children and young people. The app can be used to live stream, send images and send and receive gifts of monitory value. A test carried out by INEQE safeguarding group found high levels of engagement from adults instructing children to engage in sexualised activity. Their advice is to check your child's device and delete the app and engage young people in a conversation – about keeping safe online and who they would talk to if someone made them feel uncomfortable online.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We take Cyber bullying very seriously in school. Any incident that is reported will be fully investigated and recorded. Parents of all the children will be informed. E Safety is a key element of the Computing and PSHCE curricular and advice is shared with Parents and carers too.
