COUNTY LINES

County Lines refers to illegal drugs being transported from one area to another, often across police and local authority boundaries (although not exclusively), usually by children or vulnerable people who are coerced by gangs. The ‘County Line’ is the mobile phone line used to take the orders of drugs. Importing areas are reporting increasing levels of violence and weapons-related crimes as a result of this trend. Visit CEOP Online for more information.

E-Safety

In the 21st Century, children have access to an incredible range of ICT tools. The Internet has had a massive impact on the information available to students. Honiton Community College aims to ensure all our students are familiar with the use of these tools and are aware of the dangers of communicating with people they don’t know.

Addressing internet safety

We ask parents/guardians to be aware of how their children are using the internet. Discuss with them the potential dangers of ‘chatting’ to people they don’t know and to remind students of their electronic footprint.

Help and support available

At Honiton Community College we address internet safety in the following ways; As part of the college annual ICT Acceptance Use Policy, An ICT unit of
E-Safety and during Life Skills lessons.
