Child Protection and Safeguarding

 

 

Who keeps us safe in school?

It is our job to keep you safe in school. If you have any worries, problems or if you feel unhappy you can talk t your teacher or any adult in school. We have a child protection policy where we write down everything we have to do to keep you safe.  Please click here to read our policy. In school, everyone will help to keep you safe. Some adults you could talk to are;

Ms DiPlacito is our school SENCo and deputy safeguarding lead. Mrs Flood is our head teacher and designated safeguarding lead. Mrs Kearford is our safeguarding and wellbeing officer and deputy safeguarding lead. Mrs Delany is our deputy head teacher and deputy safeguarding lead.

New Snap Maps Feature. E-safety concerns.

It has come to our attention that Snapchat now has a feature where users can share posts on a Snap Map. Snap Map allows users to search maps for public posts and then zoom in to find the exact location of the user. It also lets people locate their 'friends' on a map that is accurate enough to determine where people live. Please remember that the minimum age to hold a Snapchat account is 13 in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. If you or your children do use this app please find the information in the link below on how to switch off location sharing.
