We believe that E-Safety is the responsibility of the whole Trust community, and everyone has a responsibility to ensure that all members of the community are able to benefit from the opportunities that technology provides for learning and teaching.
We believe that the key to developing safe and responsible behaviours online, not only for students but everyone within our community, lies in effective education. We know that the internet and other technologies are embedded in our students’ lives, not just in school but outside as well, and we believe we have a duty to help prepare our students to safely benefit from the opportunities the internet brings. We aim to deliver this through a cross-curricular curriculum, and will incorporate E-Safety into appropriate areas of the curriculum.
This page aims to point our parents/carers and students to useful information regarding E-Safety.
If you have any concerns regarding E-Safety or Safeguarding in general, please speak to our Designated Safeguarding Officer – Helen Alderson, or our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Officer – Julie Betteridge.
