Staying Safe

In school, your children will use the internet and online games to support their learning. We also provide online learning tools for homework. Many of our children will also be using the internet at home, particularly on tablets  or mobile phones. All children and parents in school will have signed an Acceptable Use Agreement, which says how the internet and ICT in school and at home will be used appropriately.

Below are some websites and documents to help you to keep informed with the latest technologies and how to keep your children safe.

 

Anti Bullying and Peer on Peer Abuse

At Heaton Avenue we take bullying very seriously and record incidents using our online reporting system (CPOMS). We will work in partnership with children and parents/carers to resolve any incidents of bullying and will endeavour to ensure that appropriate support is put into place.

Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare

At Heaton Avenue we believe that we have a strong focus on Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare. A child's welfare can be affected by many factors both within school and out and can cause both physical and emotional harm. We aim to support and develop the emotional well-being of all our pupils.
