Team Safeguarding Voice are a group of children in Years’ 3, 4, 5 and 6, who work to keep children safe at Holmer Lake. They are recognised locally and nationally for the work they have done, helping other young people know how to keep safe.
They are easily recognisable by their red sweatshirts, with the TSV logo on the front. The children receive regular training about the things that are going on in the world and help other children to understand and manage this. They work closely with the telford and Wrekin Children’s safeguarding Board. Their work has included:
- Writing a leaflet to help children understand the different categories of abuse
- Writing a leaflet to help children understand about sexting and Youth Produced Sexual images

- Tackling homophobia and racism
- Working with the local policing team on anti-social behaviour
- Organising conferences for other children
- Presenting their work at different local, regional and national events
