The Child Safety Group have put together an information pack for parents. The pack includes lots of information on safeguarding risks to children and also gives parents tips and advice on ways to reduce those risks. Please take a few moments to have a look through the safeguarding pack (available here) or if you'd prefer a paper copy we have them available at the main office for you to collect.
The PACT Child Safety Team aims are to ensure that our schools have the most rigorous safeguarding systems and procedures. Keeping the children safe is our number one priority.

Prevent is a national strategy to reduce the risk of radicalisation and exposure of extremist activity to our children. We will be sending out information following on from this letter with details of a parent workshop on Prevent and what parents can do to help their children stay safe. The team will also be sharing advice and tips for parents and guardians on the school websites.
This guide was developed from talking to parents and carers of young people and is aimed at helping parents, carers, other family members and friends cope when a young person is self-harming. It includes information on the nature and causes of self-harm,
how to support a young person when facing this problem and what help is available.
