Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children refers to the process of protecting children from maltreatment, preventing the impairment of children’s health or development, ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care and taking action to enable all children to have the best life chances.

At Thurlby Community Primary School we recognise the responsibility we have under Section 175 (LA Schools)/157 (academies and Independent Schools) of the Education and Inspections Act 2002, to have arrangements for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.

Keeping children safe online: NSPCC - Help for Parents

To help parents keep their children safe online, NSPCC have launched their Net Aware app to give parents the tools and knowledge to access advice on the go. Net Aware is the only guide for parents where social networking sites and apps aimed at children are rated by other parents, helping them make an informed decision about which is most appropriate for their child at different ages.

As part of their partnership with O2, they have updated their Net Aware guide with nine new sites with reviews from parents and findings from their recent Net Aware survey with primary school children. It’s vital that parents sit down together with their children regularly to talk about which social media sites they are using, and how to get help if they need it.

Their Net Aware guide can support parents in having conversations with children about staying safe online. For further advice save their O2 and NSPCC online safety helpline number (0808 8005002) for parental control queries or concern about a social network their child uses. Save the helpline number in your phone and share with friends and family. http://www.net-aware.org.uk/
