The NSPCC is looking for 13 to 16-year-olds to join a Young People’s Board for Change. The board is an exciting opportunity to have a say in important work by the UK’s leading child protection charity.
E-safety is vital for pupils from the age of four. From this age the vast majority of children in our country are having regular access to the internet via tablets or smartphones. Everything and everyone has an ‘app’, and creating apps and games for children is big business. How do we protect our children in a developing, potentially unsafe, world? How do we future-proof our children in a digital world?
A child’s safety at the end of a school day is paramount and is sure to be at the top of every school’s agenda; however, what should be a relatively routine process can often be poorly executed. Failure to adequately protect school children during the challenging end-of-day transition period will concern any parent, and could be deemed unnecessary considering the straightforward solutions available should the school be willing to take the necessary steps.
I believe that all schools should consider four key areas when it comes to guaranteeing the safety of their pupils at the school bell.
