E-safety Top Tip - My child is under 13, should they have a Facebook account?
Facebook and many other social networking sites, require users to be 13 and over in order to set-up an account, to comply with legislation
However, it is known that increasing numbers of children are registering on sites like Facebook, by claiming to be older than they are.
This is a very important element of day to day life in school. There are many elements to this...

Visitors and Safeguarding
Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children.
All adults within the school have a responsibility to identify children who may be in need of extra help or who are suffering, or are likely to suffer, significant harm. All then have a responsibility to take appropriate action, working with other services as needed.
If any visitor has concerns about a child they should raise these issues with the school’s designated safeguarding lead. At Holton le Clay the safeguarding lead is:
• Mrs D Hunt and in her absence
• Mrs J Marsden / Mr S Leeman
This also includes situations of abuse which may involve staff members.
Our Safeguarding officers are:
Mrs Dawne Hunt (Executive Headteacher)
Mr Stephen Leeman ( in absence of Executive Headteacher)
Mr Jim Allen (Chair of Holton le Clay Schools Governing Body)

The internet is such an integral part of children's lives these days. It opens up so many educational and social opportunities, giving them access to, quite literally, a world of information and experiences.
Whether on a computer at school, a laptop at home, a games console or mobile phone, children and young people are increasingly accessing the internet whenever they can and wherever they are.
As you would protect your child in the real world, you will want to make sure that they are safe whatever they are doing. Like learning to cross the road, online safety skills are skills for life. If your child understands the risks and can make sensible and informed choices online, they can get the most from the internet and stay safe whilst doing so – particularly from those people who might seek them out to harm them.
