Staying safe

Staying safe , at home, at school and when you are out and about!

In School

We hope that you will always feel happy and safe in school. Sometimes you may feel  a little sad in school. Perhaps you have fallen out with friends or you are worried about your learning? Maybe there is something at home that is upsetting you? If ever you need to talk to someone, you can always trust the adults in school. All adults are 'trained' to listen to you and help you in the best way they possibly can. Your class teacher or the teaching assistant in you class will always be ready to listen, but you could always talk to a MTA, administrator, Mrs Smith or anyone else. If you don't feel like talking but you need someone to know how you are feeling, leave a note on your teacher's desk.


A great book to read is ' The Huge Bag of Worries' by Virginia Ironside ( you can find it in the library)

It's all about how sharing a problem or worry, can help to make the problems and worries go away. 

Worried about something online?

Let us know if you are upset or worried about something you have seen online, send us a message below and we can help.

All children in school had a talk from the NSPCC. They explained how to contact Childline ( 0800 1111) This is a confidential support service. You can also read the leaflets below



Share Aware campaign overview (LONG)

To kids, online life is real life. And, just like in real life, kids need help to stay safe online.

Share Aware is an NSPCC and O2 campaign to help parents have regular and informed conversations with their child about online safety. We're aiming to get every family in the UK chatting about their kids' online world, just like they would about their day at school.

We tell children that’s it’s good to share, but online it’s different and sometimes it can be dangerous. Through our straight-forward, step-by-step advice and Icebreaker email series, we’ll show parents how to untangle the web and teach children how to make the right decisions online, even when parents aren’t there.

  • Our new TV ad – Safety advice from a 10 year old.

  • Icebreakers email series – We’ve teamed up with O2 to create a bespoke email series full of tips and information on different issues eg cyberbullying and inappropriate content, with activities parents can complete with their child.

  • Mumsnet partnership – Join our Twitter Q&A at 12.30pm on 16th May using #ShareAware, alongside a Mumsnet Facebook live.

  • Family agreements – We have created a downloadable family agreements document for families to complete and fill in together.

  • Share Aware homepage - Read our step-by-step guide to being Share Aware and our TEAM (Talk, Explore, Manage, Agree) framework on how to stay safe online in four simple steps.

  • Net Aware - Our guide to the most popular social networks sites, apps and games that children use. New sites site such as, Kiwi and Pokemon Go have been added this year, along with a breaking news page and top tips from O2 Gurus on blocking, private account settings or in-app purchases. The new Net Aware can be downloaded on both iOS and Android.

  • Teaching resources – Download Share Aware teaching resources for use in the classroom.

  • Specialised advice - Advisors at our O2 & NSPCC Online Safety Helpline – 0808 800 5002 – are here to help with any questions, or anyone can make an appointment with a Guru in store.
