Parents and Friends Association
 
We have a very active Parents and Friends Association which organises fund raising events throughout the year, for example French Nights, Spring and Christmas Fairs, Fun Runs and other events.


We always need new members - if you are interested or can help in any way, please contact the school.

 
 
Safeguarding Children
 
Kirk Smeaton Church of England Primary School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. All North Yorkshire schools, including ours, follow the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board procedures. The school will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their children. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Social Care and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with Child Protection procedures). The school will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents. The school's child protection policy is available on request.
 
 
Internet Safety
 
If you struggle to keep up with your child's internet activities, you're not alone. A 2006 survey for children's charity NCH and Tesco Telecoms found that two-thirds of parents couldn't define a 'blog' - a web diary or notebook that invites comment from strangers on the net.

Even more striking was that only one parent in every 100 believed his or her child regularly visited a blog. In fact, the survey found that one-third of children - some as young as 11 - were logging on to a blog two or three times a week or visiting one of the increasingly popular social networking sites, such as Bebo and MySpace, which allow users to post messages, pictures and videos. 

Ten per cent of 11-year-olds said their parents knew nothing about the people they were making contact with online. A similar proportion claimed to surf with no adult supervision at all.

As in any other area of life, if you don't know what your children are doing, where they're going or who they're mixing with, you risk compromising their safety.

At Kirk Smeaton School we teach internet safety in Lions and Eagles classes but this cannot be a substitute for monitoring and supervision at home. The following websites are good if you need more information on the subject; there is also the BBC Chatguide booklet which can be downloaded (below). If you are concerned about your child’s safety on the Internet then you can always speak to one of the teachers in school.
