Our pupils increasingly use mobile phones, tablets and computers on a daily basis. They are a source of fun, entertainment, communication and education. However, we know that some adults and young people will use these technologies to harm children.
As a school we regularly provide updates and sources of information to encourage Parents to consider measures to keep their children safe when using the internet. To find out about e-safety within the curriculum, as well as staff training, parent workshops and our plans for the future please click here.
Further information for parents can be found on the following websites:
The NSPCC and O2 have teamed up to offer some fabulous free advice for families about keeping safe online. For tips and advice on parental controls, keeping safe whilst playing minecraft, how to be 'share aware' and loads more, please click here.

New Snap Maps Feature- E-safety concerns:
It has come to our attention that Snapchat now has a feature where users can share posts on a Snap Map. Snap Map allows users to search maps for public posts and then zoom in to find the exact location of the user. It also lets people locate their 'friends' on a map that is accurate enough to determine where people live. Please remember that the minimum age to hold a Snapchat account is 13 in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. If you or your children do use this app please find the information in the link below on how to switch off location sharing.
