Friday Bulletin – 29th September 2017

29 September 2017

Dear Parents and Carers,

We began delivering our ‘Kidsafe’ safeguarding programme to children in Year 4 and Year 5 this week.

Kidsafe UK is a registered charity founded in 2004. It provides training to school staff in order for them to deliver Kidsafe specialised child protection and safeguarding programmes to children and young people from Early Years Foundation Stage through to Secondary School.

Miss Nagle and Mrs Thompson are both fully qualified Kidsafe tutors. They deliver the Kidsafe programmes at an age appropriate level; please be assured the important issues are conveyed sensitively to children, whilst protecting their innocence.

Kidsafe’s aim is to protect, educate and empower children. With the help of our puppet, KS, the programme is uniquely designed to help children take an active role in protecting themselves from all forms of abuse. Kidsafe is proactive, not reactive. It was founded on the fundamental belief that empowering children to speak out to a trusted grown up about abuse will help minimise the short and long term damage and harm associated with abuse. If you have any questions about the programme, please speak to Miss Nagle or Mrs Thompson, or download the booklet here .

 

I think it’s safe to say that autumn is well and truly here. I hope you have a lovely (if soggy) weekend.

 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler

Headteacher
