Below are some helpful websites and resources regarding safety and mental health.

Kooth:

Kooth is a website we direct students to if they want to talk about their feelings anonymously.

Look at www.kooth.com for support when it comes to speaking to your teen about their feelings.

NSPCC and Childline:

This is in case you have concerns that a child may be at risk of abuse or harm. Young people can also make those calls themselves to report concerns.

Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH).

If you have concerns about the welfare of a child you can make a referral to MASH. Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) | Nottinghamshire County Council 

Online Safety:

Young people use smartphones so frequently and confidently that we forget how much access they have to the world through these devices and through social media. Any reminder of this is timely and important.

During this school holiday period, please continue to monitor your child’s online activity and talk openly to them about their use of social media. With apps like Snapchat, young people can easily share their location with others and talk to strangers. This can be incredibly dangerous and it is important we continue to remind our young people about these risks and monitor activity.

Parents and young people can refer concerns about online sexual abuse to CEOP or can report concerns to Police through the 101 number.

The UK Safer Internet Centre provides support as to how to protect young people online on a range of devices.

Peer on peer abuse / Harmful Sexualised Behaviour

All Saints’ recognises that it takes a lot of courage for a child to disclose that they are being abused or are experiencing an upsetting event. Our staff recognise that children are capable of abusing their peers (including online). All staff will be clear about their school’s procedures with regard to peer on peer abuse.

At All Saints’ we have robust systems in place to support students and minimise the risk of peer on peer abuse.

Prevent

Prevent is about safeguarding individuals from being drawn into terrorism, ensuring those vulnerable to extremist and terrorist narratives are given appropriate advice and support at an early stage.

The ‘Preventing Radicalisation Policy’ is part of our commitment to keeping children safe. Since the ‘Education and Inspections Act 2006’ schools have a duty to promote community cohesion. Over the last few years, global events have led to a growth of extremist viewpoints, including advocacy of violent extremism. In March 2015, new statutory duties were placed on schools by the Counter Terrorism and Security Act (2015) which means they must work to prevent children being drawn into extremism.

At All Saints’ Catholic Voluntary Academy, we ensure that through our school mission, values, rules, diverse curriculum and teaching we promote tolerance and respect for all cultures, faiths and lifestyles. The governing body also ensures that this ethos is reflected and implemented effectively in school policy and practice and that there are effective risk assessments in place to safeguard and promote students’ welfare.

Anti-radicalisation-Policy

It can be hard to know what to do if you’re worried someone close is expressing extreme views or hatred, which could lead to them harming themselves or others. Working with other organisations, the police protect vulnerable people from being exploited by extremists through a Home Office programme called Prevent.

Act early and tell us your concerns in confidence. You won’t be wasting our time and you won’t ruin lives, but you might save them.
