Safeguarding

E safety in our school

E safety in our school 1

E-Safety is an important part of the way in which we safeguard all of the children in our care. Through a thorough PSHE (personal, social, health education) curriculum, we teach the children not only how to stay safe online in school, but at home also. We also recognise that increasingly, children are accessing the internet, social media and gaming through a range of devices and so we teach them about this also.

We conduct surveys in school  as part of our 'healthcheck' regarding E-Safety and communicate this to parents.

There are planned opportunities for parents to attend E-Safety workshops led by the Cambridgeshire ICT services and the school works with its cluster of local primary schools and secondary schools also on this important aspect of children's safety.

Please find below some useful links for parents which may help inform you about the issues your children are facing in this increasingly digital world.

If you would like to speak to the school, in confidence, about any issues related to E-Safety, please contact the school office by email: office@holme.cambs.sch.uk and request to make an appointment with Mrs. Thomas or Mrs. Allen.

Threats to Schools

 

Occasionally, schools throughout the UK receive threats via email from unknown sources. Unfortunately, the frequency of these threats, which have been found to be hoaxes, has increased in recent months.

 
All threats are taken seriously, and the school has well-rehearsed procedures for such occasions, such as checking the premises thoroughly, as well as informing the police and the local authority.
 
Across the country, the vast majority of such threats turn out to be hoaxes, but, in the highly unlikely event that we were to find any evidence that the threat may be genuine, we would evacuate the school immediately and notify the police.
 
Please be assured that the safety of your children is our foremost priority at all times.
