Esafety

At Wellesbourne CE Primary School, we make sure our pupils are aware of the risks online and what to do to stay safe. We have a set of SMART rules which the children are expected to follow at home and in school to make sure they stay safe online. These rules can be viewed below and should be followed when using all kinds of technology such as mobile phones, games consoles and home computers.

We are getting a lot of children who are using WhatsApp – here is an essential guide for parents – please read.

WhatsApp safety: a how to guide for parents

View our school’s e-safety rules below.

e-safety-rules

Please see presentation from latest e-safety meeting below:

Tips for Parents One way to make browsing the internet safer at home is to use a ‘safe search’ search engine. We have a list of safe search engines on our search page. Click ‘Safe Search’ below to visit this page:

www.safesearchkids.com

www.askforkids.com

www.kids.yahoo.com

www.kidsclick.org

We also encourage parents to set up filtering on their home internet. To learn how to do this for the major providers of internet, please click the text below.

Setting up internet filtering and parental controls

We also suggest parents visit the website link below for up to date information on Facebook privacy settings, as whilst we know that no children under the age of 13 should be on Facebook, if they are, then they should be educated as to how to ensure they are safe.

www.internet-safety.yoursphere.com

In school, children learn about E-Safety through lessons and assemblies. We also encourage parents/carers to talk to their children about how to behave safely when online, to ensure pupils remain safe when browsing at home.

At the start of April, we held an Internet Safety Meeting at school for Parents. If you would like a copy of the leaflet that was handed out to Parents, then please click on the link below.

FAQ

We have had a number of questions asked on a regular basis by parents new to the school. Here are some answers.

Please feel free to send any feedback using the Website Feedback form, if more information is required and we will add it to this page.

What is the time of the School Day?
Children at the Annexe can enter school from 8.50 while the Main Site play outside until the whistle is blown at 9.00am. Children are supervised on the Main Site playgrounds from 8.50am. In wet weather the children can enter from 8.50 am.

When are SATs Tests held in school?
These end of year assessments are usually done in May. Year 2 and Year 6 parents have the results included in the Annual Report on their child.

What are DBS Checks?
If you volunteer your services to a member of staff, you will need to register with the office in order for us either to view your DBS check or arrange for one to be completed. This is obviously VERY important for the safety of our children and we thank you for your support.

Can we bring dogs into school?
The school grounds are a Dog Free Site. Please ensure all dogs are kept outside the gates and on the opposite side of the path to the school.

Do we hold Open mornings/afternoons at school?
Yes, it is your chance to come into school to have a look at what goes on throughout the school on a normal working day. Staff and governors are available to talk to.

We also are happy at any time to show prospective parents and pupils around the school just contact us to make an appointment.

What are Non School Uniform & Bring a Bottle days?
Organised to collect bottles for the School Summer or Christmas Fayre, in return for not wearing school uniform, the children bring in bottle, chocolate or filled mug, as requested. This is organised by the Friends of the School.

Who are the Friends Of the School?
A group of parents/ friends who organise fundraising activities to raise money for the school.

Wht are Pebble points/ merits/stars and rockets?
Reward names used within the school.

Does the school hold Services at St. Peter’s Church?
Each term we have a service at the church, these being Christmas, Easter, St. Peter’s Day and sometimes at the end of term. Parents are welcome to attend – information is provided on the weekly newsletters.

What is the whole school sponsored Walk/ Swim
This is generally an annual activity organised to raise money for a named charity or the school.

IS there a School Council?
The views of the children at Wellesbourne are taken very seriously on a range of issues. The School Council is a group of nominated children from across the school who discuss school issues with staff on a weekly basis to inform improvements at the school.

Can we take children on holidays in School Time?
Holiday in school time can be requested via a Holiday Form available at the school office, but it is not an automatic entitlement. Authorisation depends on the year of the pupil, time of year and previous attendance rate. Additional work will not be set by teachers for such absences.

Are there School Assemblies?

Parents are welcome to attend Friday assemblies, due to rapid increase in pupil numbers at the school we have made adjustments to Friday assemblies. They are as follows:
KS1 will be every Friday at 9.10am
KS2 will be every Friday at 2.45pm.
Assemblies involve each class taking it in turns to hold the assembly organised by the class teacher. The children also receive any star of the week certificates that they have earnt. Certificates from major achievements outside school are also celebrated.

Are there any After School Clubs?
A wide range of clubs are available after school for children, ranging from recorders, textiles, ICT and many sporting opportunities. A letter is sent out each term for parents to request a place. There is a minimal charge for these activities.
