Important online safety reminder issued by Hampshire County Council

The return of pupils to school, coupled with ever-growing online activity including expanding social media platforms, provides an opportunity to remind everyone about the importance of continuing to raise awareness of how to stay safe online.

The national guidance recommends reviewing security and safety settings, checking facts and guarding against disinformation, being vigilant against fraud and scams, and managing the amount of time spent online. One of the most effective methods of keeping young people safe online is to raise awareness. This can be done through the taught curriculum (Education for a Connected World (publishing.service.gov.uk) and ProjectEVOLVE - Education for a Connected World Resources).

Parents/carers should be encouraged to have conversations about the online activities in which children are engaged, who they are talking with and the safeguards they are taking.

Guidance on these conversations can be found at: Teaching Your Child about Internet & Online Safety | NSPCC.

Online safety guidance advice and resources are also available from the County Council for parents/carers, children and young people and professionals within schools. Other helpful sources of advice are Parentzone, the NSPCC and the UK Safer Internet Centre as well as the Digital Parenting Magazine published by Vodafone.

 

 

If you have concerns regarding your child’s mental health and wellbeing and would like support from the School please contact Mrs Clark or Mrs Lewis from our Pastoral Support team who will do all they can to help:

 

My Name is Miss Borwick and I am the Student Support and Guidance Manager here at Henry Beaufort School.

My main role is to support students whose social and emotional needs are a barrier to their learning, or to students who are experiencing difficulties. My aim is to improve the general wellbeing of students and to provide a space to listen to and help those who are having a particularly challenging time with their mental health, whether this is anxiety related, relationships, self -esteem, identity, body image, sleep problems, low mood etc. I want to help build student’s resilience and positive emotional health so that they are happy individuals capable of coping with whatever life after school entails. I also signpost students and their families to access additional support if required. We work closely alongside CAMHS and several other agencies.

Please feel free to contact me on my email if I can be of any help.

My working hours are 8.00am – 3.30pm Monday - Friday

 

Hello, my name is Mrs Callen-Organ, Student support and Seclusion Manager. My role is to offer Pastoral support for students that present difficulties with behaviour in and out of class. I work with the students to reflect on choices and how we can work together to get back on track.

I liaise closely with our Heads of Year and Teachers to get the best support for our students. The students I see have a safe place where they can talk about school, home, friends or anything that they feel is impacting them on a regular basis and just need support. I help with this through different methods from 1-1 sessions with the students, working with teachers in and out of class, liaising with staff members on their behalf, and being a contact for parents.

Please do contact me if you would like support or advise for your child.
