E-Safety

Dear Parents/Guardians

It is becoming increasing difficult for you, our parents and carers, to keep up to date with your children’s use of technology but we all have an important part to play in helping young people develop safe and responsible online behaviour and we want to work with you to raise awareness about the possibilities, risks and issues associated with technology.

We do have a section dedicated to E-Safety on our website and in the very near future I am planning on launching an E-Safety Steering Group which will include members from the various stakeholders involved in the school.  I would envisage that there would be two places allocated for parental participation.    If you are interested in being a member, which will meet once every three months, please use the contact us page

In the meantime please find below some information about child safety which you might find useful.  There are also helpful links if you are concerned and need support.

Yours sincerely

M Tomkins

Headmaster
