The Mary Towerton School

Inspiring all to reach their potential


As a school we are committed to safeguarding children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.


How do we safeguard children in our daily activities?

In the event that any child discloses something that concerns you, or you overhear something that’s makes you suspicious of a child being at risk you must act.


What should you do?

  • Listen carefully – do not interrupt
  • Clarify the facts – do not interrogate
  • Reassure the child
  • Avoid leading questions
  • Do not promise confidentiality
  • Record accurately onto the pink concern form using the child’s own words (forms in the staffroom)

Online Safety

Always be careful when you are using the internet. It can help you to keep in touch with your friends and help your education – but it can also cause harm – to you and to others.

Remember help is always available at school if you are having any problems online.
Don’t be afraid to talk to your teacher or another adult at school.
If you or anyone you know is worried about Child Exploitation, Online Protection or anything related to Internet safety please click the link below which will take you to the CEOP reporting website.


There are many smart phone apps and social media media sites which are used by thousands daily. As a parent, it is important to talk to your child about how to access them correctly. The NSPCC have provided clear guidance for parents in relation to these and most importantly, the recommended age restrictions.
