Concerned about a child?

Mrs Emma McLean

Designated Safeguard Lead

Anything that makes you feel uncomfortable is worth sharing

The welfare and safety of children is paramount. If you have concerns about a child’s welfare or safety please tell someone.


If a child is in immediate danger, left alone or missing, you should contact the police directly and/or an ambulance using 999.

Report it

To report suspicious behaviour online with or towards a child go to the CEOP website.

Be open

Talk to your child about what they use the internet for. 


Be positive about the internet and remember that it is a fantastic learning and communication tool.


Try not to overreact to minor issues.


Keep PCs, laptops and games consoles out of bedrooms wherever possible. 


Set boundaries in the on-line world just as you would in the real world. 


Make sure all devices that connect to the internet have parental controls to help you set appropriate boundaries. 


If a games console or PC is used for on-line gaming, be aware that your child may be chatting to people on-line; make sure they are adequately supervised.


Make sure that you are in control of the privacy settings for any of the on-line apps being used by your child.
