Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is of paramount importance and is everyone’s responsibility.
It is the responsibility of every member of staff, volunteer and regular visitor to our school to ensure that they carry out the requirements of this policy and, at all times, work in a way that will safeguard and promote the welfare of all of the pupils at this school. This includes the responsibility to provide a safe environment in which children can learn.
Digital safety has become an increasing concern for parents and schools over the last year as young people have had to spend more and more time online. There are many ways we can protect young people and now, more than ever, we need to be even more vigilant about their access to online platforms and social media Apps.
To help with this we have included a link for a fantastic website that gives you detailed information about each App, including the age it is appropriate for, what harmful content may be included and what parental controls it may have. It also has a useful guide about different ways you can add your own parental controls. We found this website very useful and a bit of an eye opener about everyday Apps we think are relatively safe. Please take some time to explore the website below so we can keep our children safe.
Computers and technology can be lots of fun. While online you can learn new things, talk to your friends and play games. Sometimes though things can happen online that make you upset or worry you. People may say mean things which make you feel sad, or you may see something that you don’t like. It is very important that you are safe whilst you are on the computer and know what to do if you feel scared or threatened in anyway.
If this happens, you must remember it’s not your fault.
