Staying Safe Online
Through the response from our parent questionnaire on how you would like to receive information, we have put together an informative E-Safety slide show for your information.
In light of the 'momo' phenomenon and recent police warnings we have added a section at the bottom of the page concerning safety around this issue: click here to go straight to it. There is also concern that momo is designed to surreptitiously harvest personal data.
E-Safety is extremely important in today's technological society and we would strongly recommend you take a look at this. You will find note pages at the bottom of each slide that gives you lots of information and ‘food for thought’ on this very serious matter.
Download the CEOP E-Safety slide show here.
The children have also written an E-Safety policy which you can find and download from here under our policies page of our website – please share this with your children along with the tips and advice given in the slide show.
Here are some links that you many find useful for when your children are using the Internet. We encourage parents to look at these pages with their children so both can understand how to use the internet safely but keep it informative and fun.
We appreciate that technology and the internet move so fast it's often difficult for parents to keep up. To know what their children are doing on line, to understand the implications and potential dangers. We would therefore encourage all parents to talk openly and freely to their children about on line safety and to assist you with the sort of questions to ask yourself and your children we have provided this link to the "Childnet International" web site which we hope will be helpful.
We encourage all our children to be vigilant on line and to be S.M.A.R.T.

Our e-safety policy can be found below.
In addition to this the school subscribes to a monthly newsletter aimed at helping parents keep up with the rapid changes to on-line activities and to the safety of children. It brings up-to-the-minute reports on the latest on-line trends such as apps and games and how you can help keep your children safe. We will keep them on this page with the latest edition at the top. Further more your ISP (internet service provider) should be able to help you with filters and safety settings if you ask them.
