Child Protection & Safeguarding

During their time at Heston, we want all our students to feel safe, learn how to keep themselves safe and understand who to speak to when they do not feel safe. Heston Community School is committed to ensuring that consistent and effective procedures are in place to fulfil its statutory obligation to safeguard and promote the welfare of the young people in its care.

The School's duty to safeguard and promote the well-being of children and young people, is outlined by the Department for Education, in 'Keeping Children Safe in Education' (September 2016) and 'Working Together to Safeguard Children' (March 2015). Heston takes its responsibilities of Safeguarding and Child Protection very seriously and works closely with the Local Authority and other external agencies to ensure the welfare of all our students.

E Safety

Heston recognises that learning about E-Safety is an essential aspect of education in the modern curriculum an we aim to embed safe practice into the culture of the school. E-Safety concerns the safeguarding  of young people in the digital world and ensuring they are safe when using these technologies.

The internet, whether accessed from a computer, mobile phone or another device, has become embedded within modern family life. It is used for many purposes including shopping, banking, finding information and socialising. It can also have a darker side with cybercrime, inappropriate material and images being sent and received and bullying. 

As from September 2017, all students and parents / carers will be required to sign the School's Code of Conduct for Using Computers / Mobile Devices.

 

KEEPING YOUR CHILDREN SAFE ONLINE

The Internet changes constantly and it can be difficult to keep up with the latest apps and trends, especially online ' challenges'. The NSPCC guide for parents and carers, 'Net Aware', will give you clear and easily-understood information about the most popular sites, Apps and games currently being used by young people. It also provides information on reporting, blocking, privicy settings and content.

 You can access 'Net Aware' at net-aware.org.uk. You can also find useful information on keeping your child safe online in the 'Share Aware' guide at www.nspcc.org.uk/shareaware.
