Government National e-Safety Toolkit

The Government has launched a new online service, called Parent Info which will give parents the information they need to help them navigate the minefield of issues children can now face on everything from spotting the warning signs of self-harm, to having a healthy body image and managing money in a digital world.

As well as giving them the confidence and support to speak to their children on such sensitive issues, it will also provide them with pathways for where they can go for more hands on support on specific issues. click on this link to access the Parent Info site

Preventing Radicalisation and Extremism

Since the ‘Education and Inspections Act 2006’ schools have a duty to promote community cohesion. Over the last few years, global events have led to a growth of extremist viewpoints, including advocacy of violent extremism. Schools have an important part to play in both educating children and young people about extremism and recognising when pupils start to become radicalised. In March 2015, new statutory duties were placed on schools by the Counter Terrorism and Security Act (2015) which means they must work to prevent children being drawn into extremism, The Prevent Duty. Click here to access our Policy on Preventing Radicalisation and Extremism.

The school's Designated Safeguarding Lead and PREVENT Lead is Mrs Sam Hicks.  

Alternate Designated Safeguarding Leads are Mrs Wendy James, Mr Matthew Ferrier, Mrs Teri Tanner and Mrs Madeline Johnson.
