E-Safety - Information for parents
Internet use is part of the statutory curriculum and the school has a duty to provide quality internet access as part of our student's learning experience. This access is carefully supervised and monitored within school and safeguards and filters are in place to ensure that the information the children can access is safe and appropriate. Full details are available via the schools E-safety policy which you can download at the bottom of this page.
Technology is advancing at a rapid rate and although this creates fabulous opportunities for online enjoyment and communication it is not without risk. With this in mind we have created links to a range of websites where parents and carers can access information about how they can protect their children from online dangers.
Internet Matters is a new website giving up to the minute information to enable parents and carers to keep their children safe online. It includes advice appropriate to children of all ages about the types of activities they may engage in whilst using technology and the issues which could affect them.
