Cumbria Safeguarding Children Partnership website:
Families can visit www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents to access advice and support on how to keep children safe from sexual abuse, both online and off. Articles provide guidance on topics as diverse as: challenging harmful sexual attitudes and promoting positive behaviours; helping a child with autism negotiate life online; supporting a child who has been sexually abused; and dealing with a range of online issues such as sending nude selfies and viewing pornography. Users will find films, downloadable guides and useful links to support organisations.
Families can also use the website to access the CEOP Safety Centre (www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre) where they can report abuse and exploitation direct to CEOP.
Operation Encompass is Cumbria's procedure for the early reporting of incidents of domestic abuse to schools to enable children and young people to receive the support and nurture that they need. The incident will be reported to the Key Adult in school before 9am on a school day when a child or young person has been involved or exposed to a domestic abuse incident the previous evening.
Mayfield School’s Key Adult who has completed specific training is Sam Kidd, Headteacher.
