When is my child ready to go out alone?


As your child gets older it’s likely they’ll want a bit more independence. Going out without you is a natural step for them to take when the time is right. This NSPCC Guide can help you work out when your child is ready and, most importantly, help you to keep them safe.

Quotes from Magna Academy parents

"If you think you know it, you don't! It's always worthwhile learning more to help your children. Keeping them safe is the most important thing."

"As most parents would have been brought up with little or no internet at all, it is surprising how much has changed compared to what they think they know."

"I thought I knew it all!"

"I now realise I had no idea about the information available to strangers and how damaging postings can be to a child's future. What they post now could affect their chances of getting a job in the future."
