Clear, Safe, and Effective Reporting
Our safeguarding duties no longer stop at the school gates. The boundaries between in-school and out-of-school incidents are now blurred, as social media and technology give students 24/7 access to each other.
Problems may be more pervasive now, but screenshots and chat logs have made them easier to evidence.
Do your students have a safe way to disclose their issues in confidence?
What about staff or parents that have concerns?
