Keeping Children Safe

Keeping children safe new guidance and expanded NSPCC helpline

The government has published guidance on safeguarding and remote education.

Expanded NSPCC helpline: While families stay at home to reduce the spread of the coronavirus, some children and young people may face increased risk of abuse or neglect at home - or from strangers online. While schools and social workers remain at the forefront of work to protect vulnerable children, expanding the NSPCC Helpline will mean many more adults know how and where to raise concerns and seek advice or support about the safety and wellbeing of any children they are worried about. Adults can contact the helpline by phone or online to get advice or share their concerns about a child, anonymously if they wish.
