Safeguarding - update June 2017

Safeguarding checklist

Farrer & Co along with Bell Pottinger have published a very helpful Safeguarding Crisis checklist. This checklist outlines the actions schools should consider in response to any allegations.

Dealing with low level concerns

Farrer & Co has published a helpful article about allegations which don’t quite meet the threshold and how schools can deal with these.

Safety online

The NSPCC, in partnership with O2, has launched a new aspect of their Share Aware campaign, supporting parents to help keep their children safe online. Share Aware gives straightforward, step by step advice to help teach children how to make the right decisions online, even when their parents aren’t there. The campaign aims to drive frequent and informed conversations between parents and their children around online safety.

NSPCC has also recently updated their Net Aware guide, the site and app, providing parents and professionals with an overview of safety and age appropriateness of all the sites and apps that young people use.

Hill Dickinson has drafted an article about how safe schools’ monitoring of children’s online activity is.

An instance of failed safeguarding

Farrer & Co has published an article about the safeguarding failures concerning Shanay Walker who died at the age of seven.
