Online safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Carrington. Each term the children in Year 3 through to Year 6 are given a specific e-safety topic to discuss and explore. We want to give the children the skills to be able to make informed choices and to know what to do if they find themselves in a situation. Every year, Carrington takes part in a worldwide Safer Internet Day campaign, making children aware of the dangers of the Internet and Social Media.
The NSPCC helpline provides help and support to thousands of parents, professionals and families. The NSPCC helpline is a place adults can contact by phone or online to get advice or share their concerns about a child, anonymously if they wish. It's staffed by professional practitioners with backgrounds in jobs like teaching, healthcare and social work, who know how to spot the signs of abuse and what to do to help.
Parents and carers often have lots of questions, such as what is the right age to leave a child home alone, what to do about bullying or how to keep their children safe online. Whatever the issue, the NSPCC are there 24/7 to keep children safe. Professionals such as teachers and doctors also contact them for information and guidance. Their helpline staff will provide expert advice and support on 0808 800 5000.
