SAFEGUARDING TIP OF THE MONTH: February
"Chat" with your kids
Develop an open dialogue so that you can talk with your kids about the benefits and dangers of the Internet. Cultivate an interest in their online activities—their favourite Web sites, online games, and interests. And don’t be afraid to ask your children who they are talking to online and what they are talking about.
FREE Guide for Parents for dealing with Childhood Anxiety
The guide offers easily implemented guidance to help children with childhood anxiety. It provides parents with a straightforward structure to approach when explaining what anxiety is to children, how to recognise positive and negative feelings, how to handle these emotions and much, much more.
Useful Safeguarding Websites
IMPORTANT information re. Online / Social Media Safety: (from the Safeguarding Team)
Please find below a link to a list of Apps which can be used as a platform to access children; the list is not exhaustive and please be aware that new Apps are constantly developed which children and then potential perpetrators access. It should be noted that when we use the term “of concern” we, by implication, promote the message that anything not on this list is safe which of course is not the case. It is not the apps that are the risk but rather the people that use them. It is also worth noting that the minimum age is not necessarily a bar to children if they enter their incorrect age.
Please be mindful that these particular Apps are not the only ones where there have been safeguarding concerns; perpetrators utilise any platform where they can access children.
