The Headteacher and Governing Body of Ashford CE Primary School take their responsibilities for safeguarding pupils very seriously. We have a duty of care for child protection and we also strive to help parents to keep their own children safe and free from exploitation . This responsibility is set out in our Safeguarding Children Policy and is displayed on the policy page.
The NSPCC Underwear Rule is a simple way that parents can help keep children safe from exploitation. Teach your child the Underwear Rule and help protect them from exploitation. The NSPCC guide for parents and a child friendly version to help you talk PANTS with your child are available below.^ Top
In today’s society, children, young people and adults interact with technologies such as mobile phones, games consoles and the Internet on a daily basis and experience a wide range of opportunities, attitudes and situations. The exchange of ideas, social interaction and learning opportunities involved are greatly beneficial to all, but can occasionally place children, young people and adults in danger.
e-Safety covers issues relating to children and young people as well as adults and their safe use of the Internet, mobile phones and other electronic communications technologies, both in and out of school.
The links below are really helpful in reinforcing safe practice with children in a fun and non-threatening way. Please look for yourself and then encourage your children to try the games and activities available.
The following links contain helpful information and advice for parents.
Practical guides about setting up parental controls and other online safety advice can be found below:
