Keeping children safe

Keeping children safe in education is a shared responsibility.  If you have any concerns regarding the safety of your child, or a young person you know, we ask that you contact us.  You might find the following resources of further help.  Please click on the image for further information.


Derby & Derbyshire C.A.R.E.S. (Children at Risk of Exploitation Service) works with children and young people who are at risk of child exploitation in Derby and across Derbyshire. The Service delivers support and  interventions to children and young people to build resilience and aspiration, empowering them to take control of their lives and supporting them to stay safe. 

Preventing Radicalisation (PREVENT)

Unfortunately, whilst rare, there are negative influencers and online groomers who use the internet, social media and online
gaming to spread their extreme ideas, which children can be exposed to Some of these ideas may be considered radical or
extreme and when a person starts to support or be involved in them, this is called radicalisation. Our experience of radicalisers is that they may link their extreme views to the global, national or individual response to Coronavirus which could be shown through films, images and discussions as

  • Conspiracy theories
  • Blaming other people for the virus and its impact on life
  • Hate against groups because of race, religion, sexuality and gender

Radicalisers will want as many people as possible to believe their ideas and sometimes encourage them to take action,
which might break the law This can be how people are drawn into terrorism.

Childline is possibly one of the best known, well resourced services to help young people in crisis.  They offer support for young people, whatever their worry is to help them make the right decisions. Their tips and techniques, ideas and inspiration, can help young people feel more in control. And they can access support in your own time, at their own pace!

Thinkuknow is an education programme from the National Crime Agency’s CEOP Command.

Since 2006, Thinkuknow has been keeping children and young people safe by providing education about sexual abuse and sexual exploitation.  Thinkuknow is unique. It is underpinned by the latest intelligence about child sex offending from CEOP Command.  Thinkuknow aims to ensure that everyone has access to this practical information – children, young people, their parents and carers and the professionals who work with them.

Alongside the Thinkuknow website the programme provides educational resources, including films, cartoons and lesson plans, to help professionals raise young people’s awareness.
