Keeping our children safe is at the heart of our school and staff are committed to ensuring the continued development of our policies and procedures. We have extensive security measures in place around online-safety which are monitored both internally and externally to ensure they are of the highest standard. These robust and proactive measures help us to safeguard the children in our care from the potential dangers associated with using online systems. E-safety is taught to all pupils through our computing curriculum and through our daily practices and procedures. In our ever changing world it is essential that we work together to progress our understanding and experience of technologies, ensuring that we are consistent in our understanding and approaches to staying safe online.
