Safeguarding info for children
This page is for our children - advice to help you to stay safe and be a happy and healthy person.
If someone is hurting you, doing things to you against your will or being mean to you, tell someone:
- your parents
- your friends
- trusted teachers
- or other staff at school.
You should also speak to us if you are worried about someone else – a child or an adult.
At Primrose Lane, the staff with special training to help you to be safe are: Mrs Holmes, Mrs Bailey, Mrs Turnbull or Mrs Orme. You don’t have to speak to those members of staff; any adult in school should be able to help you.
You can email for help or advice: email@example.com
If you don’t wish to speak to someone in school, you have other choices:
If you are being bullied online, or if you have any concerns about things on the internet, speak to a trusted adult, call the police or use this link
The YoungMinds crisis messenger service provides free, 24/7 crisis support across the UK. If you’re experiencing a mental health crisis and need support, you can text YM to 85258.
When we’re talking about bullying, don’t forget what STOP means in our school:
- the definition: Several Times On Purpose
- the solution: Start Telling Other People
Finally, there’s an independent helpline for people who have experienced sexual abuse in a school or other educational setting: 0800 136 663. You can also email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The helpline provides both children and adults who have experienced sexual abuse in schools with support and advice, including onward action such as contacting the police if they wish to. The helpline also provides support to parents and professionals. Anyone who gets in touch through this dedicated helpline will also be signposted to other relevant support services available, including Childline, which provides ongoing support and counselling to children and young people.
