Keeping children safe
Keeping children safe
We want to make sure that Newcastle is a safe place for every child and young person to grow up. We work closely across services, and with other organisations to try and make Newcastle safe for our children and young people.
In this area you will find:
After school clubs, community activities and tuition
Do your children go to an after-school club, attend community activities, or receive out of school tuition?
We know there’s lots of great individuals and organisations offering such services for families in Newcastle and, as part of a nationwide project, the Department for Education has asked us to ask you a few questions about the sorts of places your kids are going, and the fun things they are doing, so we have a better picture of what’s available.
They’ve also produced some new guidance, including some of the questions you might want to ask providers to make sure your children are as safe as they can be.
Tell us about a club, activity or tuition provider
We are asking both parents and providers to tell us about the after school clubs, community activities or tuition they use or offer.
Please complete the relevant quick surveys via the links below:
Government advice and information
The Department for Education has produced a series of information booklets to help providers, parents and carers keep children safe when attending community activities, after-school clubs, tuition, sports training and other out-of-school settings.
You can access and download the Government guidance on its website.
Training for providers
If you provide after school clubs, community activities or tuition for children then we are holding a number of free 30 minute online briefing sessions to help you understand the latest safeguarding guidance and so you can be confident that children are safe in your setting.
Four sessions will take place on Tuesday 25 January 2022 at:
