NSPCC & ChildLine
At Westfield, we pride ourselves on keeping children safe; this includes pastorally and online. We try our best to educate parents on the safe use of social media, especially the apps like SnapChat that our children love to use. New features are added to these apps daily, and we know how hard it is to keep up to date with what our children are using. Here are some useful links which may help.
The NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) is the UK's leading children's charity, preventing abuse and helping those affected to recover. Their website has lots of resources to educate, inform & guide parents & pupils.
NSPCC have created Net-Aware, a very user friendly website/application to educate parents and carers on the facts about all of the social media apps. You don’t even need to know the name of the apps you’re looking for as you can search by icon colour or keyword.
Childline is there here to help anyone under 19 in the UK with any issue they’re going through. Whether it’s something big or small, our trained counsellors are here to support you. Childline is free, confidential and available any time, day or night. See the website for further details.
