Being Safe Online

One of the most common questions and concerns I hear relates to parental engagement and what they can do to support what the school is doing in term of supporting children when they are online. Arguably it is one of the most frustrating aspects as schools are having to deal with the issues that are happening outside school, taking up valuable time and resources.

This section will hopefully address some of these issues and provide practical advice, along with suggestions and guidance about how to approach a range of issues linked to being safe online.

The resources are flexible enough and writtenin such a way that you are able ot dip in and out as required and take the sections/ areas that you need. The same issue is often covered more than once, but approached in a different way. This allows you to adopt the strategy thst is most appropriate for your needs.

IMPORTANT: You are not alone when dealing with these issues and we are here to help in any way that we can. Please feel free to contact your child's Head of Year/ Welfare Manager in the first instance and they will be. happy to support in whatever way they can.
