· Pupils’ health and safety within school and on visits
· Teaching pupils about safeguarding themselves, through our PSHE and RSE Curriculum
· Meeting the needs of pupils with medical conditions
· Providing first aid
· Internet or E-safety
· Promoting British Values and preventing Extremism
Haughton St. Giles CE Primary Academy supports the Government’s PREVENT agenda and promotes RESPECT and TOLERANCE through our School Christian Values and British Values. For more information and practical advice, please visit the Educate Against Hate website
Parent and Carer Online Toolkit
Childnet have a parent and carer toolkit that can support parents with conversations about online safety. The toolkit provides three resources that offer practical tips and advice on different aspects of keeping your child safe online. These resources can support parents and carers of any age child to start discussions about their online life, to set boundaries around online behaviour and technology use, and to find out where to get additional help and support.
Please click here to view the toolkit.
Having a child with access to such a wide and ever changing digital world can be a confusing place for some parents and carers. Vodafone have a digital parenting advice page, and magazine (we are sending a copy home to every family) to help navigate the digital dilemmas you may come across. You can access more information by clicking here.
