Top tips for parents

Before School

Remember you are responsible for your child before school.  Staff do not come out on duty until 8.30 am so please ensure that your child either does not arrive at school before this time or is accompanied by an adult.

After School

Please pick up your children at 3.20pm each day from their designated areas.  You must inform your class teacher of who is picking up your child each day.  As the nights are drawing darker, we strongly recommend no child under Year 6 is allowed to walk home on their own.  Permission must be given in writing. Letters about picking up are in the foyer.

Online Safety

Do you know the age rating for some of the games your children are playing?  Please find attached a sheet explaining the different age certificates of some games.  The guidance is there for a reason – you may not always realise what your child is exposing themselves to.  If you want more information on how to keep your child safe please look at these websites:

https://parentzone.org.uk/advice/parent-guides - this is a fantastic website, giving parents information about the games children are playing, safety settings, advice on how to help your child question things they see on line.         

NSPCC have some excellent resources about online safety. These can be downloaded from


Childline have also produced some short videos about recognising unhealthy relationships, aimed at teenagers. They can be viewed at http://www.omdukblog.com/our-work/childline-launches-new-listen-selfie-campaign/

This would be a useful starting point for discussing wider issues around unhealthy relationships. 

Stopitnow.org.uk  is a website that people can access if they are worried about their own, or other people’s behaviour, both on and offline.

CEOP https://www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre/ is a site which shows you how to report concerns on line.

 Operation Encompass

As as school we have signed up to Operation Encompass, which been designed to provide early reporting to schools / colleges of any domestic abuse incidents that occur in which a child was present, ordinarily resides at the incident location or with an involved party. We know that children can be significantly affected through witnessing or being exposed to domestic abuse and this operation will allow us to better support our pupils and their families.

 At Ocklynge Junior School we have a Key Adult who is Sylvia Berhane.  She will be able to use information that has been shared with her, in confidence, to ensure that the right support is available should it be required by a child and / or their family.

We are keen to offer the best support available to our pupils and we believe this is extremely beneficial for all those involved.
