Online Safety: Discord
Please see guidance here on the Discord app. While this app can be used to learn and connect, please note that the official age rating is 13+ and the safety rating is only 'average'. If you choose to let your child use this app, then please go through the guidance together to ensure that they are using it safely. Talk to your child about who they are talking to. We want to keep everybody safe. :)
We take safeguarding very seriously. Included on this page are some handy links to help you help your children stay safe and our policies and procedures around safeguarding. If you have any questions about this topic, please don't hesitate to contact us at the school and we'll be happy to help.

A word about physical behaviour...
We have a zero tolerance of physical behaviour in school. All incidents will be dealt with by the headteacher or assistant headteacher and parents informed.
We also teach our children the anti-bullying message STOP:
This ensures our children can spot bullying in all its forms so that they are supported properly.
Our children are taught about the following at an age appropriate level:
- verbal bullying
- physical bullying
- cyber bullying
- homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying
Older children learn about healthy relationships and strategies to avoid CSE (Child Sexual Exploitation). We use the Real Love Rocks materials provided by Barnardos.
