HARRISON HEADLINES - Friday 4th December 2020

Dear all

Thank you for your support this week. As we edge towards Christmas we are very much focussing on carrying on with our learning and continuing to keep each other safe.

Our update this week focusses on e-safety. This has been put together by Mr Gooding and the e-safety children's work group who have explored this issue following Anti-bullying Week. Our e-safety reminder to children is always 'Pause before you post'. The Autumn E-Safety newsletter and the attachments listed below can be viewed under the Children, Useful Information, Online Safety Section of our website.

  • Autumn E-Safety Newsletter 
  • 14 Ways to be Kind Online 
  • Fortnite – What parents need to know
  • Roblox – What parents need to know 

We are very aware that some children are spending longer than ever each day online and that this is unavoidable at present as many of their usual hobbies have been put on hold. Our priority as a team is to support children to be 'safe online', understand the risks and be responsible and respectful at all times.  I have recently signed the NSPCC petition regarding the new 'Online Harms Bill' and asked for support from our MP, Suella Braverman. Your support would be much appreciated. Wild West Web | NSPCC

Please also see below the 'Clever Never Goes' campaign that we will be joining in the Spring term.

 

A message from the HSA

We are now on Amazon Smile! 🙂 If like us, you're spending slightly too much money on Amazon right now, please consider logging in through Amazon smile instead. It's all the same products and you still get Amazon Prime benefits if you've got Prime. It just means that we receive a small percentage of what you spend... gives you an excuse to do some more sofa shopping!
To find us search for 'Friends of Harrison Home School Association'

I know that this update contains some rather serious content when we need a bit of fun and levity however am very aware of our responsibility to our children and wider community at this time. 

I sincerely hope that your Christmas shopping lists are getting shorter....

Regards

Sara Gmitrowicz
