SAFEGUARDING

At Bishops the safety of our students is our prime concern.  

Your young people may spend a lot of time on social networking or virtual world sites like Facebook .

These popular sites are a great way for them to interact with friends using computers and mobile devices and have changed the way your children communicate with their friends and family. Too often though, young people include too much personal information, discuss inappropriate behaviours that could get them into trouble, or otherwise place themselves at risk by what they share online.

We deal with the issues of safety on social networks through our Skills For Life lessons.  However, we are aware that most of the interactions on such sites occur outside of school.  For this reason we recently invited parents and carers to attend a workshop presented byWest Mercia Police.
