Keeping Safe - Information for Children
We work hard to make sure that our pupils know how to keep themselves safe, for example making sure they know that they should tell an adult if they are worried about anything. We also make sure they know how to keep themselves safe out and about and at home, by having an internet safety code and inviting in outside agencies such as the police and fire service.
We also talk to the children in assemblies as well as in classes and in small groups to find out what they know and what we can do to help them.
We have a child-friendly version of our Safeguarding Policy which is shared with children each year.
Child-friendly version of Safeguarding Policy
The internet can be fun but sometimes you find things that make you sad or scared. Tell your mum, dad or the person who looks after you at home if something makes you feel sad or funny inside. You can also talk to your teachers if anything upsets you and they will help.
- Never tell anyone who you don't know your name, where you live or which school you go to.
- If you are worried or unhappy about anything you see or hear on the internet, tell a grown up and they will help you.
- Ask an adult before using the internet or opening a message.
- Keep your computer password private.
- People who don't know you are strangers. Some people on the internet may not be who they say they are.

Worried or frightened about anything?
You can always talk to a grown-up at school if you are worried or frightened or if you want to talk to someone else you can call 'Childline', which is a place where grown-ups who are nice can help you.
Always remember to tell a grown up you like and trust if you are sad or scared about anything.
