Staying safe on the internet

The use of technology has become a significant component of many safeguarding issues. Child sexual exploitation; radicalisation; sexual predation: technology often provides the platform that facilitates harm.

Safeguarding & Staying Safe

Your child’s welfare is of paramount importance. Our school will establish and maintain an ethos where pupils feel secure, are encouraged to talk, are listened to and are safe. Children at our school will be able to talk freely to any member of staff if they are worried or concerned about something.

Bullying

At RCS, we treat bullying as a very serious issue because we recognise the significant damage that bullying can do if not challenged and dealt with quickly. We urge all of our students to report bullying straight away and our students are aware that bullying will not be tolerated.

Being Different

At RCS children are taught to value difference and diversity and that we are all treated equally. This is because we want every child to feel comfortable with who they are regardless of gender, ability, race, religion or sexuality.

Drugs & Alcohol

As a school, our aim is to educate young people to enable them to make informed decisions around the wide variety of substances in society that they may come across.

Feelings & Worries

Emotional Health and Wellbeing creates the foundations for healthy behaviours and educational attainment. We look at self-esteem, different approaches to managing feelings, and mental health. Our aim is to assist young people in the development of emotional resilience.

Support for Parents & Students

RCS Chat

RCS CHAT is our Student Health and Well-being Advice Service, offered to our students in partnership with Youth Support from Early Help. This service provides advice and guidance for all health related matters and is available to students every Thursday after school.

Early Help

Support, prevention and early intervention for children and families.

Our Early Help Team provides intense, focused support when problems first emerge. The right Early Help services at the right time can reduce or prevent specific problems from getting worse
