E-Safety advice and guidance for parents/carers

With ever increasing advances in technology that is being embraced by our young people, it is important to teach our children the benefits and the pitfalls of these technologies.

It is also the responsibility of all the adults in our children's lives to ensure that they have the knowledge and the skills to keep themselves safe at all times.

To this end, the school has provided the following articles and links to ensure that parents and carers have useful and up-to-date information in protecting their children online and when using mobile technologies.

The school would strongly recommend that parents should visit and subscribe to the Thinkuknow website. This service provides parents with email updates of current E-Safety issues and dangers. This site managed by the CEOP/National Crime Agency.

We are also increasingly aware that a number of our pupils are currently using social media site/apps. Although we respect that this is a parental decision, we need to make parents aware that our pupils do not meet the minimum age restrictions for all of the popular sites our pupils regularly frequent. Please see the graphics below for more information.
