Parents often ask us where to look for advice on keeping children safe.

A really useful starting point is :


We are very aware of the need to educate our children about both the benefits and risks of using information technology. Children's use of the Internet is carefully monitored while they are in our care. In addition, we aim to educate them about the enormous benefits as well as the dangers they might face when using the Internet in their day-to-day lives. 

Below are links to some useful websites for children and their parents about the benefits and risks of using IT:

‘Under the Education Act 2002 (Section 175 for maintained schools/Section 157 for academies/free/independent schools), schools must make arrangements to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.  Parents/carers should know that the law (Children Act 1989) requires all school staff to pass on information which gives rise to a concern about a child’s welfare, including risk from neglect, physical, emotional or sexual abuse.  Staff will seek, in general, to discuss any concerns with the parent/carer and discuss the need to make a referral to Children’s Social Care if that is considered necessary.  This will only be done where such discussion will not place the child at increased risk of significant harm or cause undue delay.  The school will seek advice from Children’s Social Care when they have reasonable cause to suspect a child may be suffering or likely to suffer significant harm.  Occasionally, concerns are passed on which are later found to be unfounded.  Parents/carers will appreciate that the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead carries out their responsibilities in accordance with the law and acts in the best interests of all children.’
