In a world where technology plays a leading role E-Safety is a key priority for the wellbeing and safety of our pupils. To promote this role we have a focus on e-safety within our school which is delivered through the following:
Specific lessons delivered around specific e-safety themes (these are specific to year groups)
Workshops for parents to identify ways in which to support and protect their children online
Provide copies of Vodafone Digital Parenting which provide information on keeping children safe online.
We are always keen to develop our E-Safety provision and do so in response to requests from parents. Should there be a specific area of E-Safety that you would like more information on or feel would be a good focus for a parent workshop please contact Mr Maguire.
