An introduction to e-Safety for pupils

We all enjoy using the internet, it can be fun and it allows us to find out lots of information BUT there are some rules to follow to keep ourselves and each other safe.  Please look at the information here to give you advice and always ask someone at home or a teacher or TA if you have any questions. Every year you will receive e-safety lessons in PSHE and there will be e-safety assemblies on a regular basis.

Remember to use WHISPER to make an alert about anything which is worrying you about the internet or gaming. (See below or the CONTACT page of this website).

Remember, everything on the list below uses the internet.

Introducing Whisper

As part of our ongoing e-Safety we have recently added a new facility, called Whisper. This allows children, parents and careers to report and inform us of any eSafety concerns they may have. Whisper, consists of a website button/link that launches an online dialogue-box. That information is then sent to an allocated email address in school, and the issues can be looked at and dealt with accordingly.
