The CPA believes that it is always unacceptable for a child to experience abuse of any kind. We recognise our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children.
We will provide staff and volunteers with guidance to follow when they suspect a child may be experiencing abuse or risk of harm. We will work co-operatively with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. we will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first- unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.
Our aim is to educate both parents and children about being safe online. Please see some useful resources listed below
