Child Line

The ChildLine Schools Service has recently visited all children in years 5 & 6 to provide them with key messages about keeping safe.  It can be beneficial for these messages to be reinforced at home. The NSPCC has developed some guides for all parents of primary school aged children  to speak to your child about keeping safe – called the Underwear rule. You can find guides to the Underwear Rule to help you have simple conversations about keeping safe from abuse at www.nspcc.org.uk/underwear.

You can speak to an advisor for further advice or request a hard-copy guide for parents and carers by phoning the NSPCC Helpline on 0808 800 5000. You can also visit www.nspcc.org.uk/parents for other advice on keeping your child safe.






At Withnell Fold, we encourage all children to aim for 100% attendance. 

Head Teachers are only allowed to authorise a planned leave of  absence from school in exceptional circumstances. Forms are available to download from the website or from school.
