The term e-Safety is solely concerned with students communicating and using electronic media (Web Sites, Social Media, Games …etc.) and devices (Phones, Tablets, Laptop Computers, Game Consoles, and Personal Computers) in a safe and protected way.
It is not solely about the use of the Internet, but a range of ways in which students communicate and interact with others, e.g. mobile phones, bluetooth technology.
The school offers annual e-Safety parents evenings, half-termly coffee mornings for individual support, ad hoc briefings with the e-Safety officer, information on our website, helpful links sent via email, flyers/booklets in the school foyer, and emotional support through our home school liaison officer.
The information below is designed to provide help to parents and students about e-Safety and guidance on using electronic media and devices safely.
If your child receives an inappropriate message or is the subject of negative/inappropriate content on the Internet/Social media, there are a number of organisations to report the issue.
