Parental guidance on HWB

Online safety advice for children and young people

To ensure that children and young people are supported to have positive online experiences, a new ‘Online issues and worries’ area has been launched on Hwb. This area includes information and advice on 10 different online safety topics, including online bullying, sharing nudes and online gaming. The advice pages offer children and young people important information and guidance on what to do and where to turn for help if they are worried about something that has happened online.

Kind regards & keep safe

Safeguarding

As a parent, if you should become worried or concerned about the welfare of a child and wish to report this, please contact the NSPCC or inform safeguarding@yht.wales at your earliest convenience.

We know that the uncertainty around the Coronavirus will be causing you all worry. I hope that this will help to provide you with reassurance that we are doing all that we can to keep children safe whilst also protecting their educational interests.

Home isn’t always a safe place. Schools closing could put some children at greater risk of abuse and neglect and that’s why we’re supporting the NSPCC. If you’re worried about a child or young person, or if you notice that something just doesn’t seem right, the @NSPCC is here. You can talk to their helpline team who offer free support and guidance on 0808 800 5000 (8am-10pm Mon-Fri / 9am-6pm weekends) or you can email help@nspcc.org.uk 24/7.

School Counselling Service

Mrs Amanda Griffiths – School-Based Counsellor

What?
Everyday life can sometimes be difficult and challenging for all of us. Counselling
can offer a safe space to talk and think about things that are important to you, or that
may be worrying you.

You can talk to the counsellor about anything – nothing is off limits and you won’t be
judged. Whatever is talked about will not be passed on to anybody else, unless you
or another person is at serious risk. Counselling sessions are available throughout
the day and the counsellor is in school three days a week.

And…
If you decide to use the service, don’t worry, this service is free. You can use it more
than once, and no mention of it will appear on your school record.

How?
Pupils can refer themselves to the counselling service by calling into the councillor in
her room or requesting a referral from Mrs Newton in FB06. If unsure of the
councillors location please call into pupil support in FB06 to ask. Alternatively, you
could ask your mentor or your parent/guardian to contact the counsellor for you.

All school counsellors in Pembrokeshire are professionally qualified, and bound by
the ethical code of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

The Education Act, 2002 requires Local Authorities and Governing Bodies of maintained schools and institutions to have arrangements for exercising their functions with a view to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children creating and maintaining a safe learning environment.

There are three main elements to our Safeguarding policy:

  • prevention through the teaching and pastoral support offered to pupils/students
  • procedures for identifying and reporting alleged abuse as school staff are well placed to observe signs of abuse
  • support to pupils/students who may have been abused
