Safeguarding at Hucklow
EMERGENCY SAFEGUARDING PROCEDURES DURING FULL SCHOOL CLOSURE
Dear Parents and Carers,
As the growth of the Corona Virus accelerates we have been taking steps to reduce the risk to our pupils, and we have been making plans to support our families in the event of any future school closures. The children have been brilliant and we have seen a record level of liquid soap and hand sanitiser being used. Staff are promoting regular handwashing in each class. For further information please click on the link below:
At Hucklow Primary School, all staff recognise that we have a shared responsibility to help keep children and young people safe by contributing to providing a safe environment for children to learn in and identifying children who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm, and taking appropriate action with the aim of making sure they are kept safe both at home and school.
Sheffield has a Multi-Agency Children’s Safeguarding Board which Hucklow Primary School supports and is guided by.

Safer Internet Day 2020
Here are some Internet Safety tips from the Safer Internet Day website(https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/safer-internet-day/safer-internet-day-2020/safer-internet-day-2020-top-tips/safer-internet-day-2020):
Safer Internet Day 2020 is being celebrated around the world on Tuesday 11th February 2020.
The global theme is ‘together for a better internet’ and this year in the UK we are putting the focus on how young people explore and express their identity online.
Everyone has their part to play in making the internet a better place, including you!
Have a look at the tips and links below with some suggestions on how to get you started and help you to stay safe and positive online.
Let’s create an internet where we are….
Free to be ourselves
Be proud of all the things that you enjoy, and keep on trying different things too. If there are new activities that you want to do online, ask an adult first to help you find them – to check they’re ok for you.
Free to be kind
Remember, the rules that you follow every day in real life also apply when you’re on the internet. It’s important to treat other people the way that you would like to be treated and always think about their feelings.
Free to play
It’s really important that your parents and carers know what you enjoy doing online, so that they can help you when you need it. Using the internet together as a family is really fun, and you’ll be the best teacher when it comes to showing everyone your favourite games!
Free to be safe
Some parts of your identity must stay private. This is your ‘personal information’ – which includes your name, date of birth, home address, school address, email address and passwords.
Free to talk
If anyone, or anything, online makes you feel worried, upset or uncomfortable, tell a trusted adult straight away. The sooner someone knows how you feel, the sooner you can be helped.
Parent and Carers Safer Internet Day Information (2020)
Our School has been given the opportunity to take part in a project that will run jointly with South Yorkshire Police. This project is known as Operation Encompass.
Operation Encompass is the notification to schools that a child (under 18) has been exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident. This will ordinarily be done by the start of the next school day.
