What is Safeguarding?

Safeguarding in the Curriculum

At St Peter and St Paul CE VA Primary School we endeavour to give our children the knowledge and skills they need to keep themselves safe.  This includes being able to identify risk and know how to access support if needed.  Please click on our 'Safeguarding Curriculum Overview' for further information on the content of the school's safeguarding curriculum.

Online Safety

Parental Guide of the Month

This month we have a link to the NSPCC online safety hub. You can visit the hub for advice and information on a range of different online safety topics including gaming, social media, parental controls and more.  You can find the hub here.

You will also find online safety information for families of children with additional needs and disabilities. The NSPCC have worked with Ambitious about Autism and parents and carers who have children with additional needs and disabilities to create activities to help talk about online safety and online wellbeing. You can find this information here

They also have some resources to support families of children with additional needs and disabilities with helping their child deal with online friendships and talking to people online. You can find this information here.

Report Harmful Content

Top Tips

Sometimes when children are online they can report feeling lonely. For example, if they see photos of friends having fun at an event they didn’t attend.  This month we have a guide from the National Online Safety website about supporting your children if they experience loneliness online.  A larger resolution pdf version is also attached, should you wish to download it.
