The safety of children when using the Internet (eSafety) is of paramount importance to our school for more information please see our E-safety Policy 2017-18
We know that parents and guardians will also be concerned that children stay safe when using the Internet at home and elsewhere. There are many websites that offer advice to parents on the topic of 'keeping your child safe online' There are some external links below.
Coming Soon - E-Safety Week 5th February 2018
The focus of the week will be to ensure that children are aware of dangers when using the internet.
NSPCC and O2
O2 have partnered with NSPCC to help you keep your kids safe.
On this hub, you'll find articles on everything from online bullying, to the apps your kids are using. Each article follows the same structure. First, we'll explore and explain the topic. Then we'll give you tips on how to talk about it with your kids. We'll give you some ideas on ground rules you might want to agree. Then help you with how to manage technology to keep your kids safe.
And if you need more help on anything, from setting up parental controls to reporting online bullying, you can call our free helpline on 0808 800 5002, or visit an O2 Guru in one of our stores.
