As our school becomes increasingly active in the world of digital learning, communication and content (blogging, Twitter, website, email, ‘the cloud’ etc) there is a real need to recognise that digital technologies are used by people in ways that can create very serious difficulties (or worse) for children.
As a school we wish to do all we can to safeguard children and to promote new ways of working. To this end we recently reviewed our Online Safety policy and this now underpins our current practice and procedures.
There is a wealth of useful online safety information for parents on the Lancashire Safeguarding Children Board’s website. Please click here to find out more about keeping your child safe online.
Online Safety at Christmas
At Christmas time many children become the proud owners of new mobile phones, games consoles, e-readers, tablet devices, PCs etc. For many, keeping safe online will be a key issue.
To help parents, carers and young people, Lancashire Children’s Services Team have produced a useful e-safety flier (December 2017).
