 E-Safety at Hankham Primary School
Our Designated Teacher for E-Safety is Mrs Simpemba.  For further information on e-safety click on the links below. 

Local schools have discussed a location where parents and carers in our area can access online safety support resources.  Hailsham Community College has kindly offered to lead on this and we direct you towards their website which has a plethora of useful guides and resources.   


The following presentation was shown at a Parent Information Event in September 2015 and is still relevant today.

Prevent Duty

As part of Hankham Primary School's ongoing safeguarding and child protection duties we are fully behind the government's Prevent Strategy.

From 1 July 2015 all schools were subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in the exercise of their functions, to have "due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism". This duty is known as the Prevent Duty for Schools.

FGM (Female Genital Mutilation)

Professionals in all agencies, and individuals and groups in relevant communities, need to be alert to the possibility of a girl being at risk of FGM, or already having suffered FGM. We judge that our school is a low risk setting due to the age of our pupils and our demographic make up.  However, all staff have received training in FGM and are aware of potential indicators and the procedures to follow as appropriate.


​NSPCC and Safeguarding

We tell our children to share but online it's different. In fact, sometimes sharing online can be dangerous. That's why we'd like to make you aware of the excellent resources available on the NSPCC website.  To access these visit and click on the Share Aware link which contains lots of information about how to keep children safe online.

Talking to your child is the best way to help keep them safe. But with things changing all the time, it can be hard to keep up to date. There is also a safety helpline on 0808 800 5002  where you can get advice on anything from the latest social networks to parental controls.

You can also  find out what other parents think about the most popular social apps and games, what's the right age and details on privacy and safety settings using the NSPCC Net Aware tool.

Their straightforward, no-nonsense advice will untangle the web, and show you how you can be just as great a parent online, as you are the rest of the time. The internet is a great place for children to be. Being Share Aware makes it safer.
