In this period of such dramatic and ongoing change to our everyday lives, it is important to
share with you all some useful contacts, links and reminders around Safeguarding for our
children as well as our adults.
Concerns for a child’s safety and well being
Mrs Talbot-Jones - firstname.lastname@example.org
Mr D - email@example.com
Any general inquiries or issues please contact:-
With all of our children being actively encouraged to use technology, they are therefore at
increased risk of potential safeguarding issues on-line. It is vital that your child’s use of the
internet and any form of social media is carefully monitored and that security measures are put in place to help keep your child safe. Please use the links below to find out more information.
Support for adults
The current situation and the uncertainties as a result will naturally increase anxiety and
pressures for us all. Please do not think you are alone. There is a vast range of support available for us all to use should we need to. If you scroll down, you can find some helpful contact details and support sites. We hope that all our families keep safe, stay connected and we want to do all we can to help.
