Safeguarding

 

Sheffield Springs Academy’s safeguarding Policy and eSafeguarding Policy can be found here.

 

As parents, you want to make sure that your children develop healthily and thrive. The NSPCC can help you with advice on how you can build strong relationships with your children and keep them safe.

 

It's more than just physical safety. A big part of keeping children safe is making sure to look after their emotional and mental well-being. Helping them develop healthy emotional bonds from infancy can have a lifelong effect, and a strong relationship can make it easier when you want to discuss issues such as expressions of sexual behaviour or self-harm.

 

As your child grows older, you'll also worry about how to keep them safe when you're not always around. When is a child old enough to be home alone? And how can they keep safe when they're out on their own? You'll also want to teach them about online safety and the dangers of sexting

 

Of course, some people find it awkward to talk about some subjects. So if you don't know how to talk to your child about difficult issues, these pages on the NSPCC website will provide helpful advice and support.
