How can I help my child feel safe?
We are living in an ever changing world and our children are faced with many life challenges that didn't even exist when we were children. Our school approach is 'our doors are always open'. If for any reason you are noticing changes in your child's behaviour and attitude and you are concerned it could be something that is making your child feel unsafe, please come and speak to us.
You can also obtain lots of information from the internet, local community groups and other forms of media. To help you find the most relevant and suitable information, please see the links below.
I need help and am worried about my child?
As parents it is extremely challenging to know what is going on in our child's online world. As a school we promote open and regular conversations to enable our children to develop a safe and healthy knowledge of the online world. At home this can be more difficult with so many devices in the home. if you become increasingly concerned make use of the resources available.
