E-Safety – Safeguarding our Pupils
Our pupils are increasingly using Computing in schools and in the home. E-Safety is concerned with supporting our children and young people to develop safe on-line behaviours both in and out of school. We have produced acceptable use agreements for staff and pupils to ensure that we are all protected, and an ICT Safety Booklet for Parents.
