Safeguarding Your Children

    E-Safety    

All pupils participate in regular age appropriate E-Safety education within computing and PSHE lessons, through Safer Internet Day activities and assemblies and in workshops delivered in conjunction with outside agencies. It is vital that the messages taught in school are reinforced at home and we frequently send home guidance to help you to have E-Safety conversations with your children.

 

 

 

Welcome to the Safer Schools App provided via Zurich.

Safeguarding children and young people is one of the most important issues facing parents, carers and those responsible for educating and empowering children and young people.

Safeguarding across the school community has become even more complex in the context of children’s access to technology and use of social media.

That is why we have opted to provide access to this app for our parents, carers, children and staff.

 



 

The Safer Schools App is designed for staff, parents/carers and pupils. It helps support and protect children by educating and empowering them at school and at home. Staff, parents/carers and pupils receive tailored content specific to their role. Pupils also receive different content depending on their year group.

Users will also receive school-generated push notifications and updates from the h2b Safer team on keeping children and young people safe.

Key Learning Topics Include:

  • Bullying
  • Social Media
  • Gaming
  • Texting
  • Safeguarding
  • Appropriate Use
  • Emerging Trends
