Repeat notice: Warning of inappropriate content being linked from school websites and printed material

Urgent: we are recommending that all schools and website owners take the time to review their website for incorrect or broken links.

In particular we are aware of two domain names that feature on many school websites that are no longer in use and are in fact now used for publishing inappropriate content.

www.childrensuniversityofdevon.org
www.devonsendpathfinder.info

If you link to either of these domain names our advice is to amend those links as soon as possible.

The correct links should be:

Devon Children’s University

https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/business-partners/partnerships/childrens-university

SEND and Local Offer information in Devon:

https://new.devon.gov.uk/educationandfamilies/special-educational-needs-and-disability-send-local-offer

If you are aware of the web address being publicised elsewhere, either online or offline then we’d recommend removal of this information also.

We would recommend that all links should be periodically reviewed, and it is suggested that any policy documents your school may have around websites be updated to reflect this. Further, it may be advisable to update any terms of reference for governor leads to be revised to include this.
