Behaved in a way that has harmed, or may have harmed, a child.

Possibly committed a criminal offence against, or related to, a child.

Keeping Children Safe Online
There are several ways to safeguard children. Undoubtedly the most effective way is to educate them from an early age about the risks they may encounter when online, what these risks are, how to spot them and what action to take.

  • Set ground rules about the use of the internet, email and texts. They should learn to take responsibility for their own actions and develop their own judgement.
  • Make children aware that online contacts may not be who they say they are
  • Children should keep personal details private
  • Ensure that they use a family email when filling in online forms
  • They must never meet someone they have only met online without a trusted adult present
  • Get your children to report concerns about conversations, messages and behaviours to you or another trusted adult. Encourage them to share their internet experience with you.
  • Get children to report bullying online, by text or phone immediately to you
  • Use parental control settings on your browser, search engine and internet security package
  • Block pop-ups and spam emails
  • Always sit with younger children when they are online
  • Watch out for any unusual or secretive behaviour from your child when they are using the internet

Clubs & Trips

As you are all aware the financial pressure on schools is increasing year upon year. With this in mind we would like to explain a few new procedures, to ensure we are able to provide children with the best possible opportunities.

Clubs
We provide a varied, interesting and cost effective club program. We are now only accepting club applications with full payment. It is worth being mindful that even clubs run by a member of staff incur costs to the school.

Trips
When we arrange a school trip we do try to keep the cost down. The payment requested from parents is advertised as ‘voluntary contribution’ (we also supplement those pupils in receipt of pupil premium with a 50% reduction). However, if a number of parents decide not to make a ‘voluntary contribution’ quite rightly the trip cost is not covered, we may need to cancel the trip.
If finding that ‘extra’ for school trips is causing you a problem, please do pop into the office and make an appointment to see a senior member of staff to discuss.

Please be assured that we do not ‘make’ money from clubs or trips. To keep the cost down we price our clubs and trips at cost which does not leave any ‘pennies to cover nonpayment.

We would also like to thank our PTFA for their contributions towards our trips.
