E-Safety

What is it?

E-safety is about the protection of children whilst they are using the internet and digital technologies. This includes: risk-taking and inappropriate behaviour by children and young people; risks and inappropriate behaviour by others to children and young people; illegal activity.

Parents’ E-Safety Survey

We would be really grateful if you could complete our e-safety survey. Whilst our school strives to empower your children with the knowledge to stay safe, it is important that you have a good awareness of the risks and dangers yourself.

Report Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying is the use of Information Communication Technology (ICT), particularly mobile phones and the Internet to deliberately upset someone else.

  1. Tell someone, report on Moodle using the ‘Report it’ tool on the homepage. Or report it here.
  2. Save evidence and take screenshots.
  3. Block the bully (on IM, social networking sites, etc.).
  4. Don’t reply or retaliate to things they say or do.
  5. Contact your mobile service provider (if bothered by txts, etc).
