Children's Safeguarding Board - Safety Squad


At our Joint Safeguarding Board meeting in March, the children discussed how Social Media and other platforms can make them feel.

At Cockshutt, our Child Centred Safeguarding Board is called Safety Squad!  Our logo and slogan are a combination of designs and discussions with our team of children.  The fantastic images were then created by Sally Harris.

The History of Safeguarding Boards

"A culture of listening to children and young people and taking account of their wishes and feelings, both in individual decisions and the development of services". (Working Together 2023)​



  • To give pupils a voice​ and have their lived experience heard and validated

  • To develop a culture of openness and honesty​

  • To upskill pupils and develop their confidence

  • To involve pupils in keeping themselves safe 

  • To support pupils to share information with other children in an age appropriate way

  • To enable children to understand their rights​



"This child centred approach is fundamental to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of every child. A child centred approach means keeping the child in focus" (Establishing a safeguarding board for children and students​ - Sian Deane Severn Training Alliance)
