E-safteyWelcome to our Online Safety Team. We are a newly formed team set up to look at online safety for pupils, staff and parents.
Over the coming weeks and months you will see information, resources and helpful tips appear on this page. You will also see a raising of the profile of E-Safety throughout the academy. It’s an area we are passionate about as the appropriate use of technology can make a huge difference to all of us in our day to day lives. We are committed to ensuring that everyone is aware of how to use all forms of technology safely.
To get started please click on the link below which will take you to a website called ThinkUknow. It is a brilliant national website and has many resources and much advice.
Message from Thinkuknow:
Children are using technology at a younger age; as such Thinkuknow are developing a new resource to help educate 4-7 year olds about staying safe online. As professionals who work with this age group, we would like to hear your views.
Thank you for completing this survey – we value your time and input.
