Safeguarding

 

Clapham School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. All North Yorkshire schools, including Clapham School, follow the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board procedures. The school will, whenever possible, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their child/ren and it is our aim to develop and maintain positive and supportive relationships with all parents and carers. However in exceptional circumstances, and in accordance with child protection procedures, it may be necessary to contact external agencies without parental knowledge. 

 

 

Child Protection Policy

Our Child Protection policy can be found here.

Clapham school, it's staff and governors have adopted the guidance for safer working practice for those working with children and young people in educational settings.  We use this as our code of conduct policy.

 

 

Keeping Safe Online

 

As your child grows and becomes more independent, it is only natural that they take this independence online. With all of the potential that the online world and new technology offers, young people now have access to huge opportunities. They use technology to express themselves, explore, and be creative; it has changed the way they communicate. The internet has changed all of our lives, and your child is growing up during this change. Many of the things that confuse, baffle or even scare us, are part of the everyday for them. For many of us, this can all be a bit too much. Whether you’re a technophobe or a technophile, it’s still possible that you’ll be playing catch-up with the way your child is using the internet.

 

You might wonder whether what they are doing is safe, and you might also be thinking, “How can I be as good a parent online as I am offline?” Do you have concerns about something you/your child has seen or been affected by online? Parents (or children) can click this link for advice, or to find out how to report your concerns. In school, we regularly teach the children about online safety and discuss with them what to do if they have any worries.
