Children Safeguarding Children

Children Safeguarding Children is an initiative of the Telford & Wrekin Safeguarding Children Board (TWSCB).  It has been piloted in Holmer Lake Primary School by a group of children in Year's 4-6 who created a Children's Safeguarding Board called Team Safeguarding Voice©.

TSV© have:

  • designed the new SAFE logo and posters which have been distributed across schools and public spaces in Telford and Wrekin;
  • re-written a publication to help children keep themselves safe;
  • helped pilot work on how to recognise and tackle domestic abuse;
  • produced a radio campaign for Free Radio on how to tackle cyber-bullying;
  • held a Children's Conference for all schools (primary, secondary and special) within Telford and Wrekin to bring children and teachers to "Learn what abuse and bullying is and help put a stop to it, so that another child does not die”;
  • worked with Adrienne Katz, who is a renowned speaker on Cyberbullying and E-Safety at the Anti-bullying Alliance Conference and have been mentioned in the Children’s Commissioner Report for England; and 
  • created a leaflet outlining the "Dangers of Sexting"

Next Steps

The TWSCB are currently rolling out the initiative to more schools in Telford and Wrekin.  If you are interested in setting up a Children's Safeguarding Board in your school please contact Siân Deane on 01952 385107 or sian.deane@telford.gov.uk.
