Our Safeguarding Lead here at the academy, Judy Lewis, thought it would be helpful to share with parents & carers regular updates about keeping children and young people safe and well.
She wanted to share this information from the NSPCC about how to talk to children about terrorism:
Talking about terrorism: tips for parents
Children are exposed to news in many ways, and what they see can worry them. Our advice can help you have a conversation with your child:
If you’re concerned about how a child is feeling following recent attacks or would like advice on how to talk to your children about terrorism, you can call the NSPCC helpline on 0808 800 5000.
Judy also thought this NSPCC advice on how to talk to your child about the risks of online porn and sexually explicit material, would be helpful to many parents & carers:
“Children and young people are now able to access porn online very easily. Whether by accident – website popups and misleading links, or because they are actively looking, it’s important for us to help young people understand the impact porn can have on them and their relationships.”
What to do if you’re worried about your child online:
Have a look at this really helpful NSPCC website with detailed advice about to talk to your child about the risks of online porn.
