Safeguarding and Child Protection at Rosehill School

Keeping Children Safe in Education

The Pegasus system

The Pegasus system was developed by Chris Channon MBE, a former Paralympian who has cerebral palsy. It is aimed at those whose disability or illness makes it difficult for them to communicate when calling or speaking face to face. It’s designed to make it easier to contact the police quickly and easily. It’s a secure database which contains details registered by an individual. They only have to say ‘Pegasus’ and give their pin number or show their Pegasus card to an officer

If you are a pupil or an ex-pupil at Rosehill and you need urgent help or support, you can contact the services below:

Safeguarding topics and useful information



Always be careful when you are using the internet. It can help you to keep in touch with your friends and help your education – but it can also cause harm – to you and to others.


Remember help is always available at school if you are having any problems online.

Don’t be afraid to talk to your teacher or another adult at school.
