eSafety

Herts for Learning eSafety Parent Newsletter Spring 2018

See Policies for our Esafety Policy.

The rules we covered are:
1. People you meet online are strangers, not friends like those you have at school
2. Be nice to people online, like you would in the playground
3. Keep your personal information private
4. Always tell an adult if you get stuck or are worried about something you see online.
We will continue to add resources and information like thinkuknow.co.uk so keep checking.
KS1 children also saw the following short film Lee and Kim. In Feb 2017 KS1 learnt about Smartie the penguin and his family.

Staying Safe

A key part of children's learning on personal safety is finding and using a ‘BIG voice’ so they can get help in any situation where they feel uncomfortable or worried. We explain how the area covered by a swimsuit or pants is private. Useful resources for parents can be found at www.nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/keeping-children-safe/underwear-rule . It is so important that we teach the children how to assert themselves and empower them to take a problem to a trusted adult. 

Health & School Meals

Health for Kids Website - Hertfordshire County Council is promoting a website for children between the ages of 4 and 11. There are activities for parents/carers/teachers to enjoy with children, advice to support their development and much more. Please note that there is a range of material and advice which parents should screen first before using with their children. It can be found at www.healthforkids.co.uk.

Summer/Autumn Menu 2018 We have the Hertforshire Catering 'multi choice menu' which our cook, Mrs Ertan, has adapted to suit the preferences of the children.

Our School Nurse is available for you to discuss any issues you may have with your school age child (5years+). She is happy to give advice on diet, sleeping, bedwetting, allergies and health in general. School Health can be contacted on 01923 427435/427295. (For under 5s please contact your Health Visitor.)
