Parents: Safeguarding updates
Each half-term, we send parents a safeguarding update with useful information and links on how they can help to keep their children and themselves safe. See attachments below. Some of the links we have included are:
Talking Pants. Not sure how to talk to your young child about keeping themselves safe and private – the link takes you to the NSPCC’s friendly dinosaur Pantosaurus who can help.
Worried about your own mental health? Being a parent can be challenging, and taking care of your mental health is important. If you need help, you can contact NSPCCs helpline on 0808 800 5000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Prevent Radicalisation and Extremism by Acting Early. Worried someone close is expressing extreme views or hatred, which could lead to them harming themselves or others? Working with other organisations, the police protect vulnerable people from being exploited by extremists through a Home Office programme called Prevent. You can visit the NSPCC website and the Act Early website for further information, how to spot the signs and how to get support if you’re worried about someone or call the Prevent helpline on 078000113764.
Findaway. Do you know someone who is being controlled, is scared, or being hurt by someone they love? Do you someone who is controlling, scaring or hurting someone they love? Findaway is a new project being supported by the Police and Crime Commissioner’s VRU aimed at supporting friends and families of victims or perpetrators of domestic abuse and providing them with the knowledge and skills they may need to best support their loved ones. You can call anonymously 03001400061
