Keeping Your Child Safe
At Stanbridge we believe keeping children safe and teaching children about this is essential.We need to ensure children become knowledgeable users of technology and that they learn how to manage the risks and keep safe when working online and when operating as responsible citizens in the community.
It is everyone’s responsibility to keep children safe. If you are worried that a child may be being abused please report this to Miss Godwin who is the Designated Person for Child Protection at Stanbridge . The Governor responsible for child protection and safeguarding is Mrs Veronica Clarke who can be contacted via the school office.
f you think a child you know is being harmed or at risk of being harmed, please contact the Access and Referral Hub on 0300 300 8585, who you can talk to about your concerns, and they will give you advice or may investigate the circumstances. All calls are treated in confidence and you need not give your details.
Everyone has a responsibility to protect children from harm.
Some children can be at risk of neglect, emotional harm, including bullying, physical abuse and sexual abuse in any environment and can include close family members as well as strangers.
Here are some useful links for parents.
Radicalisation and Extremism
Children, teenagers and adults can be drawn towards the process of radicalisation in a number of ways, many of which may overlap. When we talk about ‘vulnerability’ or ‘susceptibility’ within this context we mean individuals who, because of their circumstance, experiences or state of mind can be lead towards a terrorist ideology. The website Lets Talk About It explains this by looking at the vulnerabilities that children or adults may experience that could leave them open to radicalisation and extremism.
