Online safety


As children are likely to be spending more time online at the moment than they normally would, it seems like a good time for a reminder about online safety. The NSPCC has a range of useful information on their website, covering topics such as online games, livestreaming and video apps, internet connected devices, parental controls and social networks – please see:


A common tactic of sexual predators is to trick young children into getting changed or undressed on camera by playing a ‘game’ or issuing a ‘challenge’, for example, to see how fast they can get changed into different clothes or into a swimming costume. This might happen over video chat or livestreaming app and children often don't even know this has happened. Videos are often taken and then circulated.

Operation Encompass

Hose C of E Primary School works alongside Leicestershire Police as part of Operation Encompass. Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has experienced, any domestic abuse. Operation Encompass will ensure that a member of the school staff, (DSL) known as a Key Adult, is trained to allow them to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared, in confidence, while ensuring that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have been experienced a domestic abuse incident.


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