Learning to stay safe online is an extremely important issue. Being able to use digital and on-line resources efficiently and safely is a life skill, and we want to work with parents/carers to make sure our students have the highest levels of competency and confidence possible.
Students study this as part of their PSHCE and Computing lessons. We also pick up particular issues with individuals and groups of students as they arise.
On this page you will find a range of links which will give parents and students a better understanding of issues relating to e-safety and protective solutions.
Any e-safety issue should be reported immediately to your child’s Academic Mentor, Year Team Leader or the Designated Safeguarding Lead.
