PE Expectations for students

PE and sport is an important part of our curriculum. We have created a set of expectations to make this work effectively and to help students enjoy their lessons. These are set out on the reverse and we would value your support in ensuring students follow with these.

Safety online

Using computers or handheld devices such as mobile phones is now part of our everyday lives including our students. How-ever, there are dangers in being online and we need to help students understand these and teach them how to be safe. On the reverse are ten simple rules to follow when working online. It would be great if you could find time to review these with your child.

Extra-curricular activities

This week saw the beginning of our extra-curricular activities for year 7 and 8. These classes run from 3.15pm until 4pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. There are three options to choose form in the first term with another set of options after Christmas.

10 Steps for keeping your child safe online

1. Decide whether you want them to have their computer in their bedrooms.

2. Don’t allow them to post personal information online – like address, email address or mobile number.

4. Keep your privacy settings as high as possible.

5. Never give out your passwords.

6. Make sure they don’t befriend people you don’t know.

7. Make sure they don’t meet up with people they’ve met online.

8. Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are.

9. Encourage them to respect other people’s views, even if they don’t agree with someone opinion.

10. If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: get them to leave the website, turn off the computer if you want to and report it using;
