We live in a fast moving world where increasingly sophisticated methods of communication are becoming available to all, including our children. Whilst this new technology is fantastic and very powerful the opportunities it offers can also come with hazards.
As a school we embrace new technology and seek to harness its power in a safe manner. All of our students receive comprehensive e safety awareness throughout their time with us and also staff take every opportunity to reinforce the messages of safety whilst accessing Internet or other forms of communication. Our e-safety policy may be read here.
As part of our ongoing work in this area we recently hosted a parent’s awareness session that was delivered by Simon Finch from the Northern Grid for Learning. He gave important messages and practical advice for parents around the subject of e safety.
If you are concerned about any aspect of e safety surrounding your child or wish to know more about how to keep safe on line please use the following links or contact us at school where we can provide you with practical advice and support via the agencies listed on this page.
The NCA's CEOP Command (formerly the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) works with child protection partners across the UK and overseas to identify the main threats to children and coordinates activity against these threats to bring offenders to account. We protect children from harm online and offline, directly through NCA led operations and in partnership with local and international agencies.
