“Children want to be respected, their views to be heard, to have stable relationships with professionals built on trust and for consistent support provided for their individual needs. This should guide the behaviour of professionals. Anyone working with children should see and speak to the child; listen to what they say; take their views seriously; and work with them collaboratively when deciding how to support their needs”.
Here at Hinstock School and Hedgehogs Nursery we are committed to the above DFE statements from 'Working Togther in Education' 2015 and this is reflected throughout our Safeguarding Policies.
Information to help keep your child safe online can be found on several websites. The following we have found to be particularly useful.
Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP)
The Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) website is run by the National Crime Agency. It has links to various websites and information available for all ages of children.

Think U Know
The internet has changed all of our lives, particularly our children’s. For parents and carers this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of. For many of us, this can all be a bit too much.
You might be struggling to keep up with the things your child is doing online, you might wonder whether what they are doing is safe, and you might also be thinking how can I be as good a parent online as I am offline?
This site aims to make online parenting simple.
