Please find below the NW SILC Safeguarding Policy and some further information relating to keeping children safe.

With many of our children currently off school and staying home due to COVID 19 the potential for online exploitation will be at its highest.

Although rare, there is a risk that with increased online activity, feelings of stress and isolation may be exploited. An understanding of digital safety will help parents and carers safeguard loved ones from a range of harms, whether that’s child sexual exploitation, fraud, or extremist influences seeking to radicalise vulnerable people.
