SAFEGUARDING TIP OF THE MONTH
NEW: Protect your computer
Take advantage of the software that exists to help parents manage their children’s computer experience. In only a few minutes, parental control software like Safe Eyes can block inappropriate websites, restrict the amount of time that your kids use the Internet and monitor their Instant Messenger chats to protect against predators.
NEW: Useful Safeguarding Websites
IMPORTANT information re. Online / Social Media Safety: (from the Safeguarding Team)
Please find below a link to a list of Apps which can be used as a platform to access children; the list is not exhaustive and please be aware that new Apps are constantly developed which children and then potential perpetrators access. It should be noted that when we use the term “of concern” we, by implication, promote the message that anything not on this list is safe which of course is not the case. It is not the apps that are the risk but rather the people that use them. It is also worth noting that the minimum age is not necessarily a bar to children if they enter their incorrect age.
Please be mindful that these particular Apps are not the only ones where there have been safeguarding concerns; perpetrators utilise any platform where they can access children.
As Co Head Teachers, we would like to welcome you to our school. We hope that you will feel Seely is the school you wish to choose for your child. We value highly the positive relationships we build between children, parents, staff, governors and our local community. We want your children to have special and happy memories of their time here.
The school is a happy, stimulating and caring place and we expect high standards of behaviour and good manners. We are highly ambitious for all of our children and there is a driving determination to ensure that pupils and adults in the school reach their full potential. We offer a rich and varied curriculum, including high quality arts and music provision, partner school links with other countries, a successful football team and a wide range of after school and community events and activities.
We are proud of our school. The high standard of our provision has been recognised through a range of external awards:
- Healthy Schools Award
- Enabling Enterprise (Network School)
- International Schools’ Award
- Artsmark (Triple Gold)
- Sing Up Award (Silver)
We have a dedicated Parent Liaison team and an active PTA, Friends of Seely, who work tirelessly to involve parents in many aspects of our school life. You will find more information on the following pages.
We hope our website gives you a flavour of Seely. We look forward to welcoming you on a visit so that you can feel the special atmosphere and see our work in action. Please phone or e-mail to make an appointment.
We look forward to meeting you.
Mrs Newton and Mrs Pearce
