Safeguarding Essentials - the new school resource from Kodo launches 12th AprilChild protection and welfare needs are evolving.
According to the NSPCC, "thousands of young people sought help last year after being sexually abused by another young person". Added to the temptation of drugs and alcohol, the challenges surrounding mental well-being, or the ever-present potential for bullying, safeguarding in schools is a constant concern.
Providing a holistic approach to protect children against both offline and online risks is vital. This is why we are launching Safeguarding Essentials, a comprehensive service for safeguarding future generations.
Safeguarding Essentials will provide a comprehensive range of safeguarding resources to help equip schools in preventing and detecting current risks faced by children. These include:
The new suite of topics will initially include:
Our new service will be accessible anytime and anywhere, empowering teachers to have the latest knowledge at their fingertips to deliver outstanding safeguarding practices with ease.
Existing E-safety Support MembersE-safety Support will be incorporated into the new Safeguarding Essentials product suite.
The service for existing E-safety Support Premium Plus members will not be affected. While you will see some changes to the website, once you have logged into your account, you will still have access to all your existing e-safety resources in the usual way. We will however, be adding some further 'sexting' resources as part of the process.
From an administration point of view, your membership package will no longer be referred to as 'Premium Plus', but will instead now be named 'E-safety Support'. This will be evident when you log into your dashboard and on any future invoicing.
