Educating Our Children

First and foremost we TALK to our children about current issues relating to safeguarding.  We discuss concepts such as 'stranger danger' whether that be in the playground, or online.  Through discussion we ​raise awareness and keep pupils safe from the dangers of abuse, sexual exploitation, radicalisation and extremism.  We tackle these issues in an age appriate and sensitive way.

We work in conjunction with organisations such as the NSPCC to educate children and give them the vocabulary they need to communicate and understand some of these concepts.
