Online Safety

Many of our pupils do use the internet and mobile phone technology at home or school and it is vital that parents and the school help them to understand how to keep safe. At school, we address e-safety as part of our on-going work with pupils. Additionally staff receive statutory e-safety training every 2 years. We also offer advice to and training to parents. If you have any queries or concerns please contact school.

UK Government Advice

 

 

Whilst there are huge benefits to being online in order to stay connected to family and friends during this period, the government recognises many parents may feel concerned about the activities and content their children are accessing. This guidance outlines resources to help keep children safe from different risks online and where to go to receive support and advice.
