You should tell someone you trust:

  • You can tell a teacher, your parents, carers, grandparents or other members of your family who may be able to help, or can tell a friend; and
  • Let people help to make things better by stopping the person from hurting you or your friends.

Notes for Parents or Carers

Parents/Carers should be aware that schools have a responsibility to ensure the well-being of all pupils. This responsibility means that the school:-

 

• Will have a child protection policy and procedures;

• Should make parents or carers aware of its child protection policy possibly through the school prospectus, and that this may require their child to be referred to the statutory child welfare agencies if they believe that the child or other children may be at risk of significant harm;

• Should endeavour to work with parents/carers regarding the welfare of their child and remain impartial if their child is being, or has been referred.

• Should help parents or carers understand that if a referral is made to social services or the police, it has been made in the best interests of the child and that the school will be involved in any child protection enquiry or police investigation in relation to their child’s welfare and educational progress; and

• Keep the parents or carers informed of the welfare and educational progress of the child.

On 1 September 2006, section 175 of the Education Act 2002 came into effect. This introduces a duty on local authorities, the governing bodies of maintained schools, and the governing bodies of further education institutions, to have arrangements in place to ensure they safeguard children and that such arrangements take account of guidance issued by the Welsh Assembly Government.

 

Where a professional has a concern about a child, they will, in general, seek to discuss this with the family and, where possible, seek their agreement to making a referral to social services. However, this should only be done where such a discussion and agreement will not place a child at increased risk of significant harm. That advice will be provided by the local social services department in consultation, where appropriate, with the police.

 

The designated child protection person at the school should clarify with these statutory agencies, when, how and by whom, the parents or carers will be told about any referral. They should also seek advice as to whether or not the child should be informed of the process.

 

As a parent or carer you may sometimes feel alone but there is usually somebody you can talk to. Caring for children is not always easy and if you’re struggling to cope you may need to ask for help and support to protect your child.

 

You may find the following helpful:-

 

• Make time to talk and listen to your child;

• Familiarise yourself with your child’s friends and routine;

• Be sensitive to changes in behaviour;

• Teach your child to feel confident to refuse to do anything they feel is wrong;

• Be aware of your child’s use of the internet and mobile phone to ensure they don’t place themselves at risk.

Nodiadau i rieni neu ofalwyr

Dylai rhieni/gofalwyr fod yn ymwybodol bod gan ysgolion gyfrifoldeb i sicrhau lles pob disgybl. Mae’r cyfrofoldeb hwn yn golygu bod yr ysgol:

  • Bydd ganddo bolisi a gweithdrefnau amddiffyn plant;
  • Dylech wneud rhieni neu ofalwyr yn ymwybodol o’i bolisi amddiffyn plant o bosib trwy brosbectws yr ysgol, ac y gallai hyn ofyn bod eu plentyn yn cael ei gyfeirio at yr asiantaethau lles plant statudol os ydynt o’r farn y gallai’r plentyn neu’r plant eraill fod mewn perygl o niwed sylweddol;
  • Dylai ymdrechu i weithio gyda rhieni/gofalwyr ynghylch lles eu plentyn a pharhau i fod yn ddiduedd os yw eu plentyn yn cael ei gyfeirio.
  • Pe bai help rhieni neu ofalwyr yn deall, os cyfeirir at y gwasanaethau cymdeithasol neu’r heddlu, fe’i gwnaethpwyd er lles gorau’r plentyn a bod yr ysgol yn ymwneud ag unrhyw ymholiad amddiffyn plant neu ymchwiliad yr heddlu mewn perthynas a’u plentyn, lles a chynnydd addysgol; a
  • Rhoi gwybod i’r rhieni neu’r gofalwyr am les a chynnydd addysgol y plentyn.

Ar 1 Medi 2006, daeth adran 175 o Ddeddf Addysg 2002 i rym. Mae hyn yn cyflwyno dyletswydd ar awdurdodau lleol, i gyrff llywodraethu ysgolion a gynhelir, a chyrff llywodraethu sefydliadau addysg bellach, gael trefniadau ar waith i sicrhau eu bod yn diogelu plant  a bod trefniadau o’r fath yn ystyried canllawiau a gyhoeddwyd gan Lywodraeth Cynulliad Cymru.

 

Pan fo gan broffesiynol bryder am blentyn, byddant, yn gyffredinol, yn ceisio trafod hyn gyda’r teulu a, lle bo’n bosibl, ceisiwch eu cytundeb i gyfeirio at y gwasanaethau cymdeithasol. Fodd bynnag, dim ond pan na fydd trafodaeth a chytundeb o’r fath yn gosod plentyn mewn perygl cynyddol o niwed sylweddol, dylid gwneud hyn. Bydd y cyngor hwnnw’n cael ei ddarparu gan yr adran gwasanaethau cymdeithasol lleol mewn ymgynghoriad, lle bo’n briodol, gyda’r heddlu.

 

Dylai’r person amddiffyn plant dynodedig yn yr ysgol egluro gyda asiantaethau statudol hyn, pryd, sut a chan bwy y bydd y rhieni neu’r gofalwyr yn cael gwybod am unrhyw atgyfeiriad. Dylent hefyd ofyn am gyngor a ddylid hysbysebu’r plentyn o’r broses ai peidio.

 

Fel rhiant neu ofalwr, efallai y byddwch chi’n teimlo’n unig ar eich pen eich hun ond fel arfer mae rhywun y gallwch siarad a hi.  Nid yw gofalu am blant bob amser yn hawdd ac os ydych chi’n cael trafferth ymdopi efallai y bydd angen i chi ofyn am help a chefnogaeth i amddiffyn eich plentyn.

 

Efallai y bydd y canlynol yn ddefnyddiol;

  • Gwenech amser i siarad a gwrando ar eich plentyn;
  • Ymgyfarwyddo a ffrindiau a threfn eich plentyn;
  • Bod yn sensitif i newidiadau mewn ymddygiad;
  • Dysgwch eich plentyn i deimlo’n hyderus wrth wrthod gwneud unrhyw beth maen nhw’n teimlo sy’n anghywir;
  • Byddwch yn ymwybodol o ddefnydd eich plentyn o’r rhyngrwyd a ffon symudol i sicrhau nad ydynt yn rhoi eu hunain mewn perygl.
