At Gawber School, we have a moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard all children in our care. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are valued and respected. All stakeholders understand that it is EVERYONE'S RESPONIBILITY TO SAFEGUARD CHILDREN. We are alert to all signs of abuse and neglect in line with the latest Keeping Children Safe in Education guidelines. All stakeholders are trained in safeguarding. This training is updated regularly.

In our increasingly digital world, it is more important than ever that children understand how to be safe online. Whether on computers and laptops, tablets or mobile phones, even the television, children can connect to the internet and interact with the entire world.

A Gawber School, we recognise that the online world brings enormous benefits to all our lives; research, communication, entertainment and information all at the touch of a button. However it is extremely important children recognise the dangers that can be found online and take steps to avoid, and report these.
