Online Safety Mission
With the ever evolving world of technology and constant introduction of new emerging technologies e-safety is a key aspect of school life embedded across our curriculum. Our students are taught how to behave responsibly and safely whilst online during dedicated lessons throughout the year in ICT & Computing & Citizenship, with cross curricular references in a range of other subjects.
In addition to this, times are dedicated throughout the year towards whole-school e-safety initiatives such as; celebrating “Safer Internet day”, online safety based assemblies and Form time activates and pupil workshops in order to educate our students on how their online life affects them.
We also identify that it is our responsibility to teach and work alongside our parents to educate, support and update them on key e-safety matters. During the year we run e-safety evenings for parents & carers, provide frequent updates to parents on new technologies and advancements coming onto the market as well as supporting them should they have any concerns about their child’s welfare online.
Should you have any concerns or queries related to on-line safety, then please don’t hesitate to contact our Online Safety Co-ordinator, Ben Ford. We would also recommend you to Parentinfo, a rich resource for parents and carers that might just help you to keep one step ahead.

Resources for Parents & Carers
Throughout the year we run e-safety evenings for parents and careers with the aim to educate and guide parents in the importance of e-safety both inside and outside of the home.
During these evenings we go over the significance of e-safety, advancements & developments in apps and emerging technologies that are now on the market, as well as providing parents with an idea into the legal implications on e-safety.
There are a range of internet resources for parents to support them in e-safety, these websites include:
