The Support Network

This area is to give all of our parents the opportunity of having other resources available to help and assist from other professionals. Please have a look and take the time to read any of the sections that will help you. And of course, please give us a call if you need further guidance and assistance with any of these sections.

If you are looking for Internet Safety Resources, please see our dedicated page to the right.

If you are a student at Mount Tamar, and want to talk to a member of the pastoral team anonymously, click on the Welfare Check In on the right.

See below for online resources and documents to help support you and your family.

Safe Places

Safe Places National Network is here to unite all the Safe Place (and Keep Safe) schemes.

They do this by having all the information in one place, so everyone can see it.

They are making special teaching materials so Safe Places can be taught about in schools.

To help make it easier to find and use a Safe Place not just when you need one but as a way of getting to know people.

What we do:

  • Provide a special easy to use Web Site to teach about the Safe Place schemes.
  • Encourage badge holders to visit the Safe Places to get to know more people in their communiy.
  • Promote allowing more user groups to participate in the Safe Places Schemes.
  • Support more authorities in launching a Safe Place Scheme.
  • Help authorities recruit more Safe Places.
  • Help users with our free- to use phone apps so they can quickly locate a Safe Place in time of need.

If your local Safe Places Scheme is not registered with us please contact them and let them know you would like them to join.
