Unfortunately some people do hurt children by hitting them,
abusing them, shouting at them or not caring for them. 
If someone is hurting you, it is Mrs Wand’s job to listen to you and decide what to do next.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mrs Brincombe is also available to listen to you if you are being hurt or abused.  She also monitors the behaviour of all children in school and is responsible for our anti-bullying policy.

We want everyone at our school to feel happy, safe and secure.  Mrs Cumberbeach’s job is to make sure we learn about how to stay safe and make healthy choices.  

Like Mrs Wand, Mr Coles is 

also available to listen to if you are being hurt, abused, shouted at or not cared for.  He is always in school until 4.30pm when clubs are on.
Mr Coles also checks what everyone is looking at on-line when they are at school and will speak to you, the Headteacher and your parents if you are looking at things that you shouldn’t be.

Mr Penstone makes sure that you know how to stay safe whilst using the internet.

 

   

 

   

 

E-Safety - Keeping Children Safe

At Horsell Junior School, we take the issue of Internet Safety very seriously.  The internet is a fantastic resource, but it can also bring risks, as some material may contain items which are illegal, defamatory, inaccurate or offensive.   We work with our pupils in school to help them understand the dangers and learn how to keep themselves safe.  For additional security, we gain access to the Internet via an Internet Service Provider who has been recommended by Surrey County Council.  They offer a filtering service for unsuitable materials for school children.
