Our pupils learn the importance of internet safety from Year 3 onwards.

As technology continues to develop and our pupils independence grows, it is natural that they will explore the internet, both in school and at home.

The internet offers great solutions for everyday problems and is widely used for education, entertainment and social networking. In the classroom, it is used to enhance our pupils learning and encourages independence for them to explore and discover new things.

However, we need to make sure that we support our pupils while they are using the internet, to make sure they are accessing it in a safe, secure and knowledgeable way. This means that if anything was to go wrong, they know how to react and resolve the situation.

We ensure we offer eSafety support by:

  • teaching eSafety lessons to Year 3 onwards
  • taking part in the annual National eSafety Week
  • enrolling our staff on the Safer Schools programme
  • delivering eSafety lessons during Coaching+

If you have any worries or concerns about the way your child is behaving online, please contact your child’s coach, or our Safeguarding Director, Mr Jaques.

We have created some guidance for parents/carers which includes useful tips and information on how pupils may access/use some of the main social media platforms. Please click the link below to view a copy of this document.
