Safeguarding is Everybody’s Business

At St. Bede’s Catholic College, the safety and well-being of our children is of the utmost importance.

We provide a systematic means of monitoring children known or thought to be at risk of harm, and ensure that we contribute to the assessment and provision of appropriate support packages. We have a structured approach to safeguarding which is followed by all members of the college community.

British Values

As part of our commitment to safeguarding our children, we have a responsibility to ‘actively promote’ the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

Radicalisation

There is no place for extremist views of any kind at St. Bede’s Catholic College.  Extremists of all persuasions aim to develop destructive relationships between different communities by promoting division, fear and mistrust of others based on ignorance or prejudice. Our duty is to equip young people with the knowledge, skills and critical thinking, to challenge and debate in an informed way.

Sexting

Sexting' is the exchange of self-generated sexually explicit images, through mobile picture messages or webcams over the internet. The problem is that once taken and sent, the sender has lost control of these images and these images could end up anywhere.
