Child Protection

East Renfrewshire Child Protection Committee are hosting three major events to tackle the concerns of parents, young people, staff and those in our local communities about exploitation in a number of ways, and at a time of increased media attention.  Please see the attached flyer for more information on the events.

Tackling exploitation


Next week we will once again be celebrating Purim.  Purim coincides with world book day this year so we are taking the theme of characters from a story for our fancy dress costumes.  Take a look in the latest news section next week for stories and pictures of the celebrations.  In the meantime please click here to view a presentation about the festival of Purim.  This presentation will give you information relating to the story that you may find helpful when talking with your child about their learning of the festival in school
