Safeguarding & E-Safety

Safeguarding

We pride ourselves on the caring atmosphere of our school. Sometimes, things happen or a child tells us something that we have a duty to refer to Social Care. We will always work with you as parents in the best interests of the children in our school.

 

Internet and E-Safety

The internet has changed all of our lives, particularly our children’s. For parents and carers this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of. For many of us, this can all be a bit too much.

You might be struggling to keep up with the things your child is doing online, you might wonder whether what they are doing is safe, and you might also be thinking how can I be as good a parent online as I am offline?

If you are worried about any E-Safety issues do not hesitate to contact us. You will see on the School Homepage a 'button' which goes straight to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP)

E-Safety education forms part of the School's Curriculum. There is also alot of advice available for parents and carers online; websites we consider useful are listed below.
