Latest Safeguarding News

This area of the safeguarding site is aimed at providing parents with the latest news and concerns regarding safeguarding.

Each half term we publish a Safeguarding and well being newsletter each half term to support our children and their families with any concerns that they may have. Each newsletter will have a “Hot Topic” that the safeguarding team feel is appropriate for the current time, along with many other  tips and advice for parents to help support their children. Links to wider services and articles will be available within each new edition, and this page will store all archived newsletters for parents to be able to access throughout the year.

June 26th 2020 – Two Apps that may be harmful for your children

It has been brought to our attention that some of our young people are using two social media apps ‘Wink’ and ‘Yubo’ which are aimed at allowing people to connect with others all over the world. These “Chat Rooms” can be accessed by anyone and people are encouraged to swap Snap Chat usernames to connect with strangers all over the globe. Yubo is particularly worrying as it is aimed at engaging the 13-25 year old audience. The schools advice would be to check your child’s mobile device and remove any trace of these applications for their own safety. If you have any concerns or require support in this please contact the school.
