The school takes its responsibilities for e-Safety and in particular ensuring children are safe when using online resources very seriously. We do this through having clear policies and procedures in place for staff and pupils and also through the specific teaching of e-Safety within our curriculum.
The Children's Commissioner has launched a guide for parents and carers on online sexual harassment and how you can support children to stay safe online. A surprising but overriding message from young people is that parents should start these challenging conversations early. They suggest broaching topics before a child is given a phone or a social media account, which is often around the age of 9 or 10.
The CEOP “Think You Know” website contains lots of useful information and resources regarding e-safety. These materials are suitable for children of all ages as well as parents/carers and school staff.
If you have any concerns regarding e-Safety please come and speak with us.
We hope you find the following factsheets helpful for keeping your children safe at home.
