Stop Abuse Together: Help to keep children safe from sexual abuse 

It’s estimated that one in ten children in England and Wales will experience sexual abuse before they turn sixteen. That’s equivalent to three in every classroom.

Most children won’t tell anyone at the time of their abuse. That’s why it’s important for everyone to know how to spot the potential signs of child sexual abuse and where to go for support if concerned.

The Government’s new Stop Abuse Together website is to help teachers and parents learn to spot the signs and know when to reach out for more support. If you have any concerns at all about a child’s safety or wellbeing you can call the NSPCC helpline on 0808 800 5000.

New Shropshire Safeguarding Community (SSCP) Website

SSCP would like to announce the launch of the Shropshire Safeguarding Community Partnership’s new website.  This website brings together information, guidance and resources for professionals and the public on all aspects of Children’s and adult safeguarding and Community safety.

The website includes useful links to local and national sources of support, as well as research and publications from the Partnership and other contributors and will be replacing the current Keeping Adults Safe in Shropshire and Shropshire Safeguarding Children websites in the near future.

Ivan Powell the Independent Scrutineer says: “This is an amazing resource for both professionals and the local community, bringing together the three areas that the Partnership covers into one website which is aesthetically pleasing and easy to navigate”

You can find the website at or by clicking here

Visitors to the school are requested to read and understand the following rules and regulations.

Through Shropshire Respect Yourself Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) Scheme of work, pupils develop a capacity to explore and evaluate their confidence, beliefs and ability to put knowledge and information into practice in their personal relationships.

Here at Trefonen School we utilise strategies within the national curriculum and beyond to secure pupils’ understanding of the wider implications of British Values.

The Safer Schools Committee meet once a term to discuss insuring the improvement and maintenance of the safety of pupils within the school through the continued coordination of our associated partners – Shropshire Council, Police, Oswestry Rural Parish Council and Trefonen School.
