Preparing your child for a safe life is paramount to the staff and governors at Hayfield Lane Primary. From tight safeguarding procedures to a strict Behaviour Policy, Health and Safety arrangements and inspections, your child is in safe hands. If you need any further advice on ways in which we ensure that children are safe, please see our school policies section under 'parents'
Our children learn to be safe through quality sessions that allow them to consider dangers/unacceptable behaviours that they may face in life. E Safety, Anti Bullying events, NSPCC workshops and much, much more, inform our children without frightening them so that they can spot any dangers before they occur.
Keeping Safe is an integral part of the curriculum and is evident in many subjects. We also have child leaders in safety- See our Playground Leaders sections of the website under 'curriculum'.
More and more children are accessing the internet both at home and at school; it is therefore important that parents, carers and staff are vigilant to what children are able to access, particularly with the increased use of social networking sites.
Within schools we operate our internet through a regional filtering system. We have an e-safety policy that staff follow when allowing children to access the internet. All staff and children sign an appropriate acceptable use agreement. The children engage in a e-safety procedures that they follow and refer to when using the internet.
Below, you will find some useful websites that have resources to raise awareness of e-safety and how to use the internet safely and responsibly. We often use resources from CEOP and explain to our children how they should report any cyber issues.
We understand that the internet is a fantastic tool which can support children's learning. We also believe that we have a responsibility to ensure that staff, children and parents understand how to keep safe while online. In order to do this, we look for regular opportunities to teach children how to use technology safely and responsibly, throughout our day-to-day learning.
