Keeping Children Safe


Welcome to your Keeping Safe page of the school website.

You, your friends and all the pupils of Beam Primary have a right to be safe in all environments; this includes, at home, school, on the street, in places like Beam Parklands, in all the places that you visit and even on the internet.

All adults must make sure you are safe from harm. Teachers;  Parents; Carers; adults who work in or visit our school; Doctors; Nurses; Social Workers; Police Officers; Faith leaders, Youth Workers and Sports Coaches – every adult is included.

If you’ve got a problem or are worried about someone,(such as a brother or sister, a friend, or someone in your class) it can be hard to know what to do. But you don’t have to cope on your own. You and all the other children have the right to grow up safe from people hurting you or failing to ensure that you are cared for. All adults have a responsibility to protect you.

If someone who you know is hurting or abusing you, tell someone you trust.

You can put a note in the worry bag in your classroom; you can talk to any adult in the school; you can phone ChildLine or go to one of the websites on the list below (please press on the icon to be redirected).

We are all here to help protect you and keep you safe from harm.  

We tell our children to share; but online it’s different. In fact, sometimes sharing online can be dangerous. That’s why the NSPCC are asking parents to be Share Aware and keep children safe online.

Talking to your child is the best way to help keep them safe. But with things changing all the time, it can be hard to keep up to date. Find out what other parents think about the most popular social apps and games, what’s the right age and details on privacy and safety settings with our Net Aware tool.

The NSPCC’s straightforward, no-nonsense advice will untangle the web, and show you how you can be just as great a parent online, as you are the rest of the time. The internet is a great place for children to be. Being Share Aware makes it safer.  Please down load the attachment below.

Leaving Children at Home Alone

Leaving children at home alone

The NSPCC has created a tool to help parents decide whether or not their child is ready to be left home alone. It raises questions for parents to think about, helps them to prepare their child for being left, and considers alternatives.
