Keeping Your Child Safe

Keeping your child safe online

Safer Internet day is on Tuesday 5th February 2019. The internet is a great resource but young people are vulnerable to bullying, grooming, shaming, trolling. The risks are endless and made worse if you and your child don't know how to keep them safe. Follow the link to get guidance from Parent Zone who have linked up with CEOPS to give you a range of easy to use guidance. Help keep your child safe online. If you are worried about your child's online safety than please follow the advice or contact the school.

Greenwich Safeguarding Children Board

Self-injury Awareness Day (SIAD) takes place on 1st March every year. The event aims to reduce stigma surrounding self-injury and let those who self-injure know there is help and support out there so they do not suffer in silence. This is an opportunity to explore the role we all play in helping young people and families affected by this issue.
In support of SIAD, the Greenwich Safeguarding Children Board (GSCB) is today launching a campaign to help parents, carers and professionals understand what self-injury is and what support is available.
There is evidence that self-harming is affecting an increasing number of children and at a younger age than ever before. It is concerning that so many young people are using self-harm as a way to deal with difficulties and that many are suffering in silence. It is important for young people to receive support and have somebody to talk to. Unfortunately, many young people don’t know where to go for help. Through this campaign we aim to make them aware that there is help available, and that they can access a range of resources online or contact local and national agencies to receive the support they need.
As part of this campaign we have developed an information and advice hub, hosted on the GSCB website. This online information hub provides links to relevant resources aimed at: children and young people; parents and carers, professionals and volunteers.

Law Regarding Legal Highs


From Thursday 26th May 2016, it became a criminal offence to supply so called ‘Legal Highs’. This includes giving them free to friends. Of more concern to us is that children in Greenwich have been taking these substances which are very risky and have caused severe health problems in some young people. It is really important that you are able to talk to your children about the risks involved in order to keep them safe. I have included a leaflet to give you further advice and information. Please talk about these substances and make them aware of the dangers. If you want to know more then you can contact the school, use the following links and/or attend an advice session we will be running soon.
If you are concerned that your child has taken one of these substances and they are unwell, then seek medical advice immediately.
