Guidance for Keeping your child safe at home

Online-Safety encompasses Internet technologies and electronic communications such as mobile phones and wireless technology. It highlights the need to educate children and young people about the benefits and risks of using new and existing technology and provides safeguards and awareness for users to enable them to control their online experiences.

The school has a duty to provide pupils with access to quality learning using internet technologies and electronic communications and, with this, the responsibility to ensure that this learning takes place safely.

Our online-safety policy recognises our commitment to e-safety and acknowledges its part in the school’s overall Safeguarding policies and procedures. It shows our commitment to create a culture that incorporates the principles of online safety across all elements of school life; proactively engaging staff, pupils and parents/carers; reviewing and maintaining the online safety principles; embedding the online safety principles and modelling the online safety principles consistently across a whole school approach.
