Staying safe online is essential in the modern world where new technologies, social networking and instant media are available to many young people.
The issue of E-safety is addressed through assemblies, posters, outside speakers and focus events such as national Safer Internet Day. Furthermore, during KS3, all students study eSafety during their Computing lessons such as the Social Network Scheme of Learning done in Year 7. We also advise students, parents, and carers to read more about E-Safety and government advice at www.thinkuknow.co.uk (this site is tailored for all ages from 5 upwards) and/or from the NSPCC’s Net Aware site.
For more information you can download our E-Safety Policy on our Statutory Information page.
