Keeping you safe online

CEOP helps any child or young person under the age of 18 who is being pressured, forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity of any kind. This can be something that has taken place either online or in ‘the real world’, or both. The CEOP Safety Centre has clear information and advice on what can be reported to CEOP, the reporting process and what will happen if you do decide to make a report. You can visit the CEOP Safety Centre and make a report directly to CEOP by clicking the Click CEOP button.

    Online safety - the Two Johns
    Good afternoon, Following the pandemic, and with Christmas almost upon us, The Two John's , two leading specialists in the field of e-safety are offering community access to a live Zoom session, tonight at 8pm. This is a full parent session that has been delivered to schools over the period of school closure. The event is hoped to cover the most up-to-date advice on how to keep children safe on the internet. Unfortunately, the event is limited to 450 so it will be on a first come first served basis for admittance.

    Light up Layer - message from FOLS
    Light Up Layer Christmas has begun! The maps for Light Up Layer are available in the village shop to purchase for £1 from tomorrow. Can you follow the map and find the letters which spell out a well-known Christmas carol? Lots of other houses are taking part by decorating their houses along the route as well so our beautiful village should hopefully look really festive. Please be careful on the roads and take a torch as we know parts of our village lack street lights. Also advisable to take a pen or pencil to note down the letters. Hope everyone enjoys the walk whilst raising funds for our fantastic village school

    Covid Sympton Study App for Schools
    Dear Parents Some of you may have the Covid Sympton Study App on your phones, for reporting how you are feeling each day. There is now a school part of this and Layer de la Haye C of E Primary School has partnered with the COVID Symptom Study to help make sure our pupils are as safe as possible now we they are back in the classroom, whilst doing our part in creating the world’s largest scientific dataset of COVID-19 in children. Parents are invited to join the COVID Symptom Study now, by downloading the free app and taking less than 1min a day to report how your child/children are feeling each day. With all parents reporting daily via the app, the app will provide a powerful tool for helping the school and parents understand COVID in the community and help keep our students safe. Importantly, the information you report will be invaluable to critical scientific research into COVID in children and for public health purposes - the Study will be sure to share any findings from their research with you. The app is available to download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Simply create a profile for yourself and for your child/children. To join our school network in the app and receive personalised COVID insights about our school, go to Edit Profile for your child’s profile > School Network > enter our school’s Unique School Network Code (see below) > select the Bubble that your child belongs to. Our Unique School Network Code is BHMTYFS . To avoid outsiders joining, please do not share this code with anyone who is not a parent of our school. For more information including full instructions on how to join and use the COVID Symptom Study app please head to: https://covid.joinzoe.com/schools What is the COVID Symptom Study app and why should you use it? The COVID Symptom Study app is a not-for-profit initiative that was launched at the end of March 2020 to support vital COVID-19 research. The app was launched by health science company ZOE with scientific analysis provided by King’s College London. Now, with over 4 million contributors globally, the Study is the world’s largest ongoing study of COVID-19. The app also provides unique insight on asymptomatic and symptomatic information across the UK which builds into a larger picture for the government and captures information not covered by other means. The Government has been so impressed with the data and research being produced it is now funding ZOE to continue the great work. All data collected in the app is used anonymously for informing other parents in your child’s school and your child’s school, and anonymously for research and for public health purposes only. ZOE takes data security and privacy very seriously and enforces best practices to ensure all data is protected. ZOE is required to protect all data by law. As the work that ZOE does takes place in the UK, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation applies. Many thanks
