Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people is everyone's responsibility. The Howard Partnership Trust Schools are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment:
The Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy can be seen on each THPT school website.
The NSPCC have been broadcasting a TV advert to raise awareness of how parents can help their younger children keep safe from child sexual abuse. If you’ve missed it, you can watch it here: https://youtu.be/nMIKUsZjirA
Parents' Pack for PANTS message
The TV advert directs parents to the NSPCC PANTS campaign, used in schools for many years. There is now a pack for parents to use, to encourage them to have a conversation that many might feel uncomfortable about having. Information is also available for children with a hearing impairment. The link to the parents’ PANTS pack is here: https://www.nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/keeping-children-safe/underwear-rule
