E-safety has a very high priority in the school and students receive advice and guidance appropriate to their age and ‘e-awareness’. As well as learning about e-safety in their ICT lessons, secondary students also get time in PSE lessons to reflect upon safe use of the internet.
In addition all Year 7 parents are invited, with their children, to a parents’ evening early in the new term when risks and safety measures are outlined. Useful documents are also provided on this page.
Being safe is also about teaching youngsters to make the right decisions as they develop independence and start to go out on their own or, to be home alone. The school will run workshops for parents and offer advice to parents when dealing with setting boundaries and giving responsibility.
